Newbigin House of Studies is pleased to offer this ministry residency in partnership with two vibrant affiliated ministries in San Francisco.
City Church San Francisco is a community of Jesus followers, seeking the renewal of San Francisco, and through it the world.
City Hope Community Center was established by City Church to connect with San Francisco’s marginalized residents – those struggling with addiction, mental or physical illness, cycles of incarceration, poverty and isolation. City Hope’s mission is to empower our neighbors in the Tenderloin to establish stable, healthy lives. We provide a trusted gathering place and creatively offer as many elements of home as possible for our neighbors on the streets.
