City Project

Making Disciples Who Make Discipleships

City Project is a two-month, intensive discipleship and missional experience where students serve locally, nationally, and internationally. City Project includes one week in New York City, five weeks in Durham, and two weeks overseas. Students learn how to apply the gospel to every aspect of their lives and make disciples who make disciples. These eight weeks immerse students in the local church and global cities and teach them how to practically love God, love each other, and love our world.

Students travel to New York City for one week to engage Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, and Buddhists with the gospel.

The middle of the summer includes several weeks in Wake Forest, North Carolina, receiving practical theological and ministry training by pastors at the Summit. During this time, students will learn to effectively share the gospel and give their lives away in RDU in response to the gospel.

During the last two weeks of the summer, students will travel abroad to serve alongside Summit church planters. This is an excellent opportunity to explore the mission of God, develop a heart for the nations, and better understand what it means to leverage your life for the gospel of Jesus Christ.

When: May 19–July 16, 2020
Cost: $5,150
Where: During City Project, students will spend one week serving in New York City, several weeks training, learning, and serving in Durham, and two weeks in Europe, the Middle East, South Asia, Africa, Central Asia, or Southeast Asia.

Next Steps

Applications and references will be accepted through January 24, 2020 (space is limited). Once applications and references are received, a member of the Summit College staff will contact each student to set up an interview. Students will then receive notification about whether or not they are accepted into the program and will then be invited to the kickoff weekend in mid-February.

“I was so focused on trying to build up my own plan for my life that I was missing out on the life God has planned for me. My God was beckoning me to be with him. He was telling me to throw down my blocks and follow Jesus to the dinner table, to be fed and to be used. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with my Creator and Savior, Jesus Christ, than to play with blocks all by myself.”

“I have a desire to preach the gospel because I know the power that it has in my life and how it’s changed me and turned my heart toward the Lord. If God’s Word says that we’re supposed to go to all nations and make disciples of all nations, I want to do what the Lord’s Word commands us to do.”
