The gospel has always spread most quickly and farthest by faithful Christians in their vocations as they go about their everyday lives.
City Life (CL) is about equipping Christians to connect their faith to their work in the marketplace. Through CL, we hope to demonstrate how your work matters to God and how you can leverage your passions and skills in your vocation for the mission of God. CL is a hands-on, theological, and marketplace practicum to teach students how to make disciples that make disciples in the marketplace and be excellent in their future careers. If you want to understand the significance of your future career and how you can leverage it for the gospel, then CL is for you!
There are two CL tracks:
Local: In CL Local, students work a summer-long internship within their field of study. Once a week, they meet in D-groups to discuss what they are reading and how it applies to their jobs. Throughout the summer, students attend weekend forums where they will learn about faith and work integration from those who work within the marketplace.
International: In CL International, students work a summer-long internship within their field of study in an international context. Students who get accepted to either of these locations will be partnered with an international “marketplace as mission” company and Christian community. They will serve with other interns, discussing gospel and work, building community, investing in international people groups, and growing in their field of study.
