An Urban Experience That Equips in Transferrable Evangelism Principles
Urban Centers have been training followers of Jesus in effective hands-on evangelism for over 20 years with locations in Philadelphia and Los Angeles!
We offer unique life-on-life training sessions on how to start conversations, how to tell your story, and how to share your faith in simple and life giving ways. We also provide practical, easy-to-use evangelism tools that make engaging with others simple. Our field experiences make our time together practical and profitable by immediately putting the lessons learned through the training sessions into practice!
Hands-On Ministry Field Experiences
There is a wide variety of “in-the-field” ministry you will experience at Urban Centers:
Ministering to the homeless
Participating in park and beach ministries
Food distribution to families in need
Other peer-to-peer ministry opportunities
Momentum Urban Centers
Momentum Urban Centers has training centers in both Philadelphia and Los Angeles. Each center offers opportunities for believers of all ages to be trained in evangelism and urban ministry. Our passion is for individuals and churches to catch a vision for living ON MISSION so they not only impact our neighborhood but their home communities through our year-round experiences.
We have facilities that are fully equipped with lodging accommodations, showers, kitchen, and training room. We can currently house up to 48 people at Urban Center Los Angeles and up to 75 at Urban Center Philadelphia.

We know there are many obstacles and hesitations with planning and preparing a ministry training trip in 2021. To make it as easy and as risk-free as possible for groups, we are offering a revised cancellation policy for any team that books a trip to one of our Urban Centers for the 2021 calendar year. This revised cancellation policy allows you to cancel your trip to our Urban Centers for any reason up to 30 days before the trip and receive a full refund of your deposit within 5-7 business days from the date you cancel.
We are doing this to take some of the financial pressure off you as a ministry leader so you can plan your ministry training trip in 2021. We appreciate your partnership with our Urban Centers and look forward to continuing to partner with you!
