Urban Missionary Experience 2013

By the year 2030, 60% of the world’s population will be living in cities.  Ever wondered what it’s like to follow Jesus in an urban setting?  Join a team of churchplanters from New Life and NLCF on a summer trip to Los Angeles, CA for an Urban Missionary Experience.  We will be working with and learning from people living out their calling to love, serve, and bless others in the city.

Some of the people and organizations we will be working with are Kairos Los Angeles (network of churches started by New Life Christian Fellowship), Hope International, The Manna RoomViaCordisBicycle Bread Co, and Open Arms Christian Center.

Here is the facebook page for the latest updates.
