New Urban and Intercultural Ministry Program


Christians devote their time and resources to international aid organizations, youth outreach and homeless shelters. Why? Because the Gospel has the power to transform lives and communities. 

Redeemer’s new Urban and Intercultural Ministry program places theology, discipleship and worship at the centre of Christ’s call to love our neighbour as ourselves. Foundational theology combined with ministry tools will prepare students for leadership and service in the ministry settings of today and the changing context of tomorrow.

"What does the Kingdom of God look like on my street, in my neighbourhood, in this community? Theology actually impacts the way I live, how I set my priorities, and what I do as a follower of the King."
