Urban Ministry Teams
Serving on an urban ministry team is an exercise in leadership development with an emphasis on mercy ministry. It will equip your youth group, deacons, or church leadership with a vision for racial reconciliation, ministry among the poor and joy in worship in the heart of Atlantic City's inner city.
The goal of Urban Ministry Teams is to assist in the evangelism and development of selected Atlantic City neighborhoods and to give your team a vision for racial reconciliation, ministry to the poor, joy in worship and urban mercy ministry that your team can replicate once they return home.
There are also opportunities to serve with New City's Summer Internship Program. Click HERE for more information.
