What is City Project?

City Project is an 8-week intensive discipleship and missional experience for college students - a greenhouse for spiritual growth during the college years. The Project includes one week in New York City, five weeks in Charlottesville, VA, and two weeks overseas. During City Project, students will learn to walk as disciples of Jesus in all aspects of life. Students will be immersed in the local church, participate in the mission of God, and practically walking in loving God, other believers, and the world.

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

The middle of the summer includes several weeks in Charlottesville, VA, receiving practical theological and ministry training by pastors and staff of Center Church. During this time, students will learn to effectively share the gospel and leverage their lives for Christ in response to the gospel. Also, students will become connected to the local church by living with a host family from the Center Church.

During the last two weeks of the summer, students will travel abroad to serve alongside partners of Center Church planting churches internationally. This is an excellent opportunity to explore the mission of God, develop a heart for the nations, and better understand what it means to leverage your life for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
