Global Urban Perspectives

Learning Through Service...


Our Mission

Transforming students by raising their awareness of urban issues and mobilizing them to live out the incarnational gospel in cities around the world.

Our Vision

Global Urban Perspectives (GUP) seeks to elevate and honor the liberating ministry of Christ within urban communities by influencing students to embody love, to recognize the redeemed image of humanity, and to pursue truth and justice within the power structures of global economies.

How to Get Involved

Global Urban Perspectives offers a number of programs during the year. Please refer to our Announcements for a listing of these special events.

GUP also offers summer immersion programs to different locations both domestic and abroad. Some of our partners include Mile High Ministries in Denver, Colorado; Inter Varsity in Los Angeles, California and Chicago, Illinois; and new this year InnerCHANGE, a Christian order among the poor. If you are interested in living incarnationally among the urban poor, please refer for our application page. 

“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.”

Hebrews 10:23-25
