Get Involved - Inner City Milwaukee

Urban Immersion™

Spring break is short — Urban Immersion makes the most of it. Why not impact a city? There are great needs in the city and there are many people who need to hear about the love of Christ.

The next chance for us to host Urban Immersion will be in 2025. Check back for details.

Urban Immersion (UI) will expand your view of God and give you a greater understanding of the city. And you will minister cross-culturally, making you more effective back on campus. In the inner city you can share the gospel with the homeless, tutor children, counsel teenagers, rebuild broken buildings and broken lives... demonstrating Christ's love to lost individuals.
