December 11, 2018 | The Urban Pastoral Ministry Program (UPMP) addresses rising urban challenges, such as poverty, racism, inequality, and violence, and the unique requirements of ministry in an urban congregation by testing a new model for training and engaging the next generation of pastors as leaders in promoting community change and social justice. UPMP undertakes to prepare a cohort (hereafter referred to as Residents) of four recent (3 years or fewer) seminary graduates for urban ministry through a two-year, intensive, supervised immersion experience. The Resident position is a full-time salaried position with benefits. Residents serve as member of the pastoral staff at their assigned church (2/3 time) and City Mission staff (1/3 time). While UPMP considers this an ordainable call, this will depend on the requirements of your denomination. City Mission and host congregations will assist Residents in the process in their denomination, where feasible and appropriate. Residents report to City Mission’s Director of Urban Ministry and the senior pastor of their assigned congregation. Read more »
