Call or text us at 872-222-8008 or e-mail us at if you have questions or would like to meet! (Also, see the bottom of this post regarding an opportunity to help your students with financial aid!)

Urban Youth Network

The next meeting is scheduled for Saturday January 16at  9am. The location is different than usual - New Life Covenant Northwest, 5100 w. Diversey. From UYN coordinator Nick Rivera:

I want to extend an invitation to join UYN on Saturday January 16 to cover 2 areas. 
  • First to unite in prayer with other youth workers to cover our students. The work we do can be very difficult and praying with out brothers and sisters in Christ is absolutely crucial. 
  • Second is to hear about how to make an impact in the schools around your church. Perhaps you have had a desire to get in the schools but don't know how, Shawn Proctor of Grip Outreach for Youth will lead a workshop on how to do so. You don't want to miss

  February's is guest speaker is longtime Chicago Urban Youth Worker Amy Williams. Date is to be determined, but probably Feb. 20

 Join fellow youth workers for fellowship & growth.  You can also call/text 872-222-8008 or e-mail for an update, or questions.  

Free breakfast (includes doughnuts, fruit, juice and coffee) is provided.
