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 two Metropolitan areas: Philadelphia and Los Angeles.

We offer unique life-on-life training sessions on how to start conversations with others, how to tell your story, and how to share your faith in simple and life giving ways, using the urban areas as a practice field. We also provide practical, easy-to-use evangelism tools and resources that make engaging with others simple and effective and provide youth leaders with experiences and inspiration they can bring home to their own local churches.

Our field experiences make our time together practical and profitable by immediately putting the lessons learned through the training sessions into practice.
