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

Rooted in the love of God and His word, GUP seeks to transform students by illuminating both the beauty and the brokenness of urban reality and mobilizing them to live out Christ's compassion for the city by engaging in God's redemptive kingdom work around the world.

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. 

"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's. The Lord works righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed." Psalm 103:1-6
