Vision/Outreach: For the second year students who want more, this program digs deeper and goes further to equip you to win your friends, family, and fellow students to Christ. Phase II is a must for chronic God-chasers who will stop at nothing to live and learn what God has and desires for them. In Phase II you will experience cross-cultural ministry in the ethnically diverse city of Chicago. Although still physically in the United States, you will be impacting the nations by ministering to many of Chicago’s different people groups, all with various religious, ethnic, and economic backgrounds. We will be involved in some very challenging and rewarding ministry feeding the homeless, doing open air evangelism, and conducting religious/ethnic surveys on the streets. You will learn what other religions believe by visiting an Islamic mosque and a Hindu temple, and how to explain the gospel in a way people from other religions can understand. Chicago is the perfect place to challenge you in ministry and in your personal relationship with God.
