This educational and experiential trip will deepen your understanding of the multifaceted challenge of global urban poverty, the rapid growth of fragile cities and how we are called to respond theologically and missiologically. You will learn about Urban Mosaic’s approach to bring about change and find out ways of how you can participate.
