Urban Outreach

Urban Outreach in 2020

During COVID-19 our ways of serving might look different but the needs are greater than ever. Write letters to North Park students at Stateville Penitentiary, do virtual tutoring for refugee children in Chicago, sort and pack supplies for people in need, visit with residents of a local assisted living home through video meet-ups, get a group together and adopt a classroom, serve at a local food pantry, pick up trash in the neighborhood, or come up with your own creative idea. Fill out the volunteer interest form or contact us directly by emailing Laura Kraybill, Co-Pastor and Outreach Chaplain, at lgkraybill@northpark.edu.


“Work for the well-being of the city where I have sent you to and pray to the Lord for this. For if it is well with the city you live in, it will be well with you.”
(Jeremiah 29:7)

The purpose of Urban Outreach is to inspire, inform, and invite North Park University students, faculty, and staff to engage the city of Chicago living a life of significance and service to others.
