Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of Chicago Summer Mission?

Chicago Summer Mission is designed with a focus on college students and campus ministry. Through training in leadership, discipleship, and evangelism, the hope is to instill a passion for the gospel in students that will bring light to the city and further prepare them to bring the message of Jesus back to their home campuses. 

What does a week for a student on CSM generally look like?

In addition to their jobs or internships, students participate in bible studies, share on campus at least one day a week, and attend weekly meetings that provide a time of teaching, worship and building community.

Where do students stay during their time in Chicago?

This project has incredible housing located in the South Loop/Columbia College neighborhood. Students get the experience of living in downtown Chicago during the summer, the best months to be there!

Can students bring a car? How do students get around the city?

Train/public transportation passes are included in the cost of this summer mission. Students are asked to NOT bring a car as there will be no parking available.
