City Project is a 2-Month, all intensive discipleship and missional experience where students serve locally, nationally, and internationally. City Project includes 1 week in NYC, 5 weeks in Durham, and 2 weeks overseas. Students learn to apply the gospel to every aspect of life and how to make disciples who make disciples. This is a chance to spend two months being immersed in the local church and cities around the globe. These eight weeks will teach students how to practically Love God, Love Each Other, and Love Our World!

Each person will travel to New York City for one week to engage Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, and Buddhists with the gospel.

“I was so focused on trying to build up my own plan for my life that I was missing out on the life God has planned for me. My God was beckoning me to be with him. He was telling me to throw down my blocks and follow Jesus to the dinner table, to be fed and to be used. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with my Creator and Savior, Jesus Christ, than to play with blocks all by myself.”

“I have a desire to preach the gospel because I know the power that it has in my life and how it’s changed me and turned my heart towards the Lord. If God’s Word says that, that we’re supposed to go to all nations and make disciples of all nations, I want to do what the Lord’s Word commands us to do.”
