Twin Cities Urban Project

God has called us to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8), but what does that look like? Equally, Jesus commanded us to love our neighbor and challenged us to broaden our view of who our neighbor is (Luke 10, Mark 12:31). The Twin Cities Urban Program (TCUP) is an experiential initiative hosted in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area to engage college students at the intersection of faith and social justice. Students will be given the opportunity to dig deep into scripture, participate in community surrounding their campus, and consider what it looks like to truly love and care for God’s people.
