We offer a perspective on urban missions and social outreach that is forged out of 4 decades of living and working alongside the poor. Groups of all ages and backgrounds have come from all over the world to work with the homeless and to experience intentional Christian community.
We partner with Cornerstone Community Outreach: one of the largest homeless shelters in Chicago, serving over 300 people daily. Work projects at CCO include serving meals to the residents, unloading trucks, assembling food bags, sorting donations at the Freestore, painting and fixing up living areas.
Wilson Abbey, JPUSA’s newest addition, offers opportunities to engage the neighborhood of Uptown through art, music, and theater. There are break-out rooms for meetings or to conduct seminars.
Come to serve—go home revitalized!
What other groups have said about us.
A visit with Jesus People USA will open the eyes and hearts of youth to urban realities, ministry to the needy, and radical Christian living. This is one place you should strongly consider for a short-term mission project.
I definitely want to come back. I learned to trust more in the Lord because He knows what He is doing. It was a great experience for me and coming back a second time I definitely could learn so much more.
This week of serving the Lord has been a very significant experience in my life. I have found from first-hand experience that serving others is a great joy.
I thank GOD for my experience there and I THANK YOU JPUSA!!!!! I tell everyone I meet about you and will continue to do so. You made Jesus so real for me that I could almost touch his face!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!!
Your group will benefit from the opportunity to minister in the awesome streets of Chicago. Experience first-hand what being the hands and feet of Jesus really means
