InterVarsity Summer Chicago Urban Program Application 2018
The purpose of the Chicago Urban Program is to raise up a community that bears witness to a holistic Gospel and recognizes the Image of God in themselves and all people. We hope to empower faithful leaders who will be equipped to sustain prophetic lifestyles that create spaces of love, healing and truth in every campus community, vocational field and neighborhood. With the city of Chicago and devoted community leaders as our teachers, students and staff will be rooted in four core values: prayerful activism, intelligent love, mutual conversion and soul care and training.

Core Values:
• Prayerful Activism as a Paradigm for Justice - We recognize the spiritual nature of all forms of oppression, exploitation, and injustice and engage in activism and organizing efforts rooted in worship of and dependence on God.
• Intelligent Love as a Paradigm for Compassion - We commit to loving people and communities privately through direct, interpersonal relief work and empowerment and publicly through persistent policy advocacy and systemic change.
• Mutual Conversion as a Paradigm for Witness – We pursue opportunities for all communities involved to experience conversions that deepen our understanding of and intimacy with God.
• Soul Care and Training as a Paradigm for Lifelong Discipleship– We develop healthy rhythms and disciplines of worship, prayer, praise, and health that roots us in Christ and connects us to the Body.

This summer you will receive practical trainings on the integration of justice with witness, stewardship, reconciliation, advocacy, and missions. We know that your pursuit of these issues will help you grow spiritually and be a more effective witness for Jesus and the coming Kingdom of Heaven.

First deadline is April 10, 2017. If you will not make this deadline, please contact us (Jazzy: jazzy.johnson@intervarsity.org) and tell us when you will get in your application. We will accept applications until the program is full.

PROGRAM DATES: June 27 - August 8, 2018
