The City Ministry Program is a certificate program to develop ministry leaders seeking practical urban ministry skills. Experienced urban ministry practitioners, including Tim Keller, deliver the program through a robust learning community.
We help leaders develop in four areas for urban ministry—students may choose to study only selected areas or complete all four tracks in one or two years.
