MISSION CARE

Urban Residency or Apprentice Program

Mission Care is a year-long urban discipleship program. Young leaders can come and mature in their faith as they learn to live their lives fully devoted to the Kingdom of God! 


Participants of the Residency program move into diverse, low-income neighborhoods, loving their neighbors through wholistic ministries such as after-school tutoring, sports, mentoring, Bible studies and more.  Participants of the Apprentice program serve in the same ways without moving into Care Fresno designated apartments.

Our Training

The curriculum for the year is split up into four key focuses which are seen in the acronym CARE: caring for our community, advancing God’s kingdom, resourcing our leaders, and engaging our youth.  Through weekly training, residents will learn more about how to care for the diverse communities they live and serve in, will engage with foundational doctrines found in the bible, will discover how other organizations are working in the city to provide resources to people, and will be equipped in how to work with youth and how to develop positive and healthy relationships with them.  We hope to build a foundational basis for ministry and set residents on a lifelong trajectory of service to God wherever life takes them.
