The Sacramento Urban Program is part of the ministry of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA. It is also a part of urban work in InterVarsity's Pacific Region: the Jesus, Justice & Poverty Institute.
InterVarsity's vision is to see:
students and faculty transformed
and world changers developed.
We do this by offering college and university students the opportunity to step out of their context (displacement) for a short period of time to learn about the Kingdom of God and issues of
injustice in the inner city. Originally inspired by John Perkin's Summer Project,
Urban Programs have existed in InterVarsity since the mid-1970s.
