Global Urban Perspectives

Learning Through Service...


Our Mission

Transforming students by raising their awareness of urban issues and mobilizing them to live out the incarnational gospel in cities around the world.

Our Vision

Global Urban Perspectives (GUP) seeks to transform students by opening a space for God to unveil faces (2 Cor. 3:18), allowing us to see the belovedness of all people, lament alongside those afflicted by injustice in the city, and find hope in God’s present, yet eternally redemptive work. 

How to Get Involved

Global Urban Perspectives offers a number of programs during the year. Please refer to our Announcements for a listing of these special events.

GUP also offers summer immersion programs to different locations both domestic and abroad. Some of our partners include Mile High Ministries in Denver, Colorado; Inter Varsity in Los Angeles, California and Chicago, Illinois; and new this year InnerCHANGE, a Christian order among the poor. If you are interested in living incarnationally among the urban poor, please refer for our application page. 

“And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart.”

2 Corinthians 3:18-4:1 (ESV)
