For The City Network: Business, Non-profit & Urban Ministry Residencies

Do you long to invest your life in areas of social good, justice and restoration?
Many next generation leaders are finding this is much harder than they expected. Our Residencies through the For the City Network were created for people considering a lifetime devotion to this kind of work — to be exposed to everything that comes with it. Join us for an experience designed to provide aspiring business, non-profit and urban ministry leaders with the tools and training they need for impact wherever they go. We don’t want to just develop and train you in specific knowledge and send you on your way – during your time with us, you’ll practice hands-on training in the city with real leaders who are making a difference.
Begin by completing the ASI Application, and our team will connect with you to discuss the specific Residency opportunities through the For the City Network.
