LoGOFF Workshop @ ForeFront Church

  • Forefront Church at The Roulette

Forefront Church welcomes Jonathan Walton to their morning services at their Brooklyn Campus for a special LoGOFF Workshop during this Advent Season. 

God calls us to flourish, work, rule and create but not at the expense of others. What does stewardship look like when every purchase seems linked to exploitation? We believe it looks like joining the LoGOFF Movement and moving from consumption to stewardship under a canopy of grace and gratefulness. 

Join us for this important conversation at 10am & 11:30am at Forefront Church.

ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

InterVarsity’s New York City Urban Project exists to see leaders developed with the character and capacity to change the world.  We believe that every person is made in the image of God to flourish, work, rule and create and be stewards NOT consumers as God intended.

New York City will be our world-class classroom for 5 days as we study scripture, pray fervently and respond actively to the commandment to love our neighbors as ourselves. Come and learn to use our 4 P's to Pray, Partner, Purchase, and Policy-shape to seek God's personal, relational and systemic justice in a world filled with relational and systemic injustice. 

Fighting sex-trafficking and labor slavery, building tutoring and mentoring programs or movements to fight climate change and more are all responses to God's desire to RECONCILE all things to Himself.  See you at REConciliation Week!

ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

InterVarsity’s New York City Urban Project exists to see leaders developed with the character and capacity to change the world.  We believe that every person is made in the image of God to flourish, work, rule and create and be stewards NOT consumers as God intended. This is the foundation of our LoGOFF Movement and REConciliation Week 2017. (#RecWeek17) 

New York City will be our world-class classroom for 5 days as we study scripture, pray fervently and respond actively to the commandment to love our neighbors as ourselves. Come and learn to use our 4 P's to Pray, Partner, Purchase, and Policy-shape to seek God's personal, relational and systemic justice in a world filled with relational and systemic injustice. 

Fighting sex-trafficking and labor slavery, building tutoring and mentoring programs or movements to fight climate change and more are all responses to God's desire to RECONCILE all things to Himself.  See you at REConciliation Week!

Responding to Injustice in Community

  • Stamford Sheraton Hotel

God has given us the ministry of reconciliation; but what does that look like today? But what does that look like after a police shooting of another unarmed citizen? What does that look like when dogs attack peaceful protestors? Or when our political process is so polarized? 

Living a life of reconciliation looks like the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. He makes it possible for us to be reconciled to God, to one another, to ourselves and the planet. Join 75+ students and leaders led by Jonathan Walton, to study scripture and respond actively to seek racial justice and reconciliation and press into the tension with the victory of Jesus at the center.

Immediately afterwards, there will be a lunch and invitation to co-create a network of "Covenant Communities" that actively practice the ministry of reconciliation around the country through the LoGOFF Movement.  This conversation is for NYCUP Alumni, donors, partners and potential Covenant Community leaders to design a Covenant that will guide small groups of individuals to actively engage in seeking shalom and justice with Christ as the center in rural, urban, suburban and international contexts. 

*Travel: There is a train public transportation to and from this location. If you need transportation assistance, please email nycurbanproject@gmail.com

NOTE* You MUST RSVP for admission. Please click here to enter your information! If you have any questions or concerns, please email nycurbanproject@gmail.com.

It's difficult to know what God intended with the world when we look around and see so much suffering. What was His original plan? What does God has to say about suffering, brokenness and pain? Join us for a conversation and workshop on the VERY GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ and how we can join Him in the renewal of all things. This event is hosted by the InterVarsity chapters from Rochester Institute of Technology and SUNY Geneseo.

There is no cost to attend and all are welcome!

In Depth Overview

For 6 weeks, every Sunday and Wednesday evening we will investigate what it means to flourish, work, rule and create as God intended in our vocation by diving into scripture, narrative, and candid testimony. “Let’s Talk Avodah | Work, Worship & Service” is NYCUP’s Summer Vocational Leadership Program bringing together Christian professionals and students to better reflect God’s Kingdom in our work places, increase sensitivity to the Spirit through spiritual discipline, and respond in word, deed and power to God’s leading even if it’s contrary to our dominant cultural narrative.

Avodah is a Hebrew word whose root has three distinct yet intertwined meaning: work, worship, service. The root of this ancient word speaks life to the present day. If God can and should be the center of every sphere of our lives, how do we do that with our work? We aim to inform, inspire and equip the next generation of marketplace leaders with the tools necessary to reframe, integrate, and apply faith in Jesus particularly to their everyday employment. With a generous grant from the Lilly Foundation we will produce a 6-Part lecture and discussion series where all attendees will be invited to Avodah Our God at work!

On Sunday evenings, our attendees will attend Calvary’s worship service to be facilitated jointly by Calvary Baptist and InterVarsity ministers. Immediately following the service there will be a dinner and discussion period around the topic that was broached, featuring Christian professionals in the city who will share more deeply, expounding on the topic. Then, on the following Wednesday night, we will facilitate an interactive workshop where attendees will apply said principles and construct a discipline to integrate these values into their daily lives.  

*Please Note: If you are only attending Calvary's Sunday evening service, there is no need to register. However, If you intend to stay for the workshop and dinner immediately following the service, you must register and pay in advance using the instructions above.

In Depth Overview

For 6 weeks, every Sunday and Wednesday evening we will investigate what it means to flourish, work, rule and create as God intended in our vocation by diving into scripture, narrative, and candid testimony. “Let’s Talk Avodah | Work, Worship & Service” is NYCUP’s Summer Vocational Leadership Program bringing together Christian professionals and students to better reflect God’s Kingdom in our work places, increase sensitivity to the Spirit through spiritual discipline, and respond in word, deed and power to God’s leading even if it’s contrary to our dominant cultural narrative.

Avodah is a Hebrew word whose root has three distinct yet intertwined meaning: work, worship, service. The root of this ancient word speaks life to the present day. If God can and should be the center of every sphere of our lives, how do we do that with our work? We aim to inform, inspire and equip the next generation of marketplace leaders with the tools necessary to reframe, integrate, and apply faith in Jesus particularly to their everyday employment. With a generous grant from the Lilly Foundation we will produce a 6-Part lecture and discussion series where all attendees will be invited to Avodah Our God at work!

On Sunday evenings, our attendees will attend Calvary’s worship service to be facilitated jointly by Calvary Baptist and InterVarsity ministers. Immediately following the service there will be a dinner and discussion period around the topic that was broached, featuring Christian professionals in the city who will share more deeply, expounding on the topic. Then, on the following Wednesday night, we will facilitate an interactive workshop where attendees will apply said principles and construct a discipline to integrate these values into their daily lives.  

*Please Note: If you are only attending Calvary's Sunday evening service, there is no need to register. However, If you intend to stay for the workshop and dinner immediately following the service, you must register and pay in advance using the instructions above.

Loving Yourself to Love Others Well

  • 315 East 115th Street New York, NY, 10029 United States

For years, I lived my life consumed by "busyness" and "changing the world". I sat on the edge of burnout all the time, neglecting my mental and emotional health to "pursue justice". I stuffed my anger, sadness, and disappointment and pressed forward creating unhealthy and unhelpful patterns that undercut the good work that I sought to do. 

Come and hear from leaders around New York City who will share their best practices on sabbath, delight and discipline so that we're able to love ourselves well so that we love our neighbors better. 

RSVP HERE! All are welcome!

How to Actually Do Racial Reconciliation and Pursue Racial Justice

  • Calvary Baptist Church

Everybody is against racism right? So why is it so hard to talk about #BlackLivesMatter v. #AllLivesMatter, police brutality, affirmative action, model minority, racism, white supremacy and the list goes on.  Many of us say we value racial reconciliation but our actions don't actually reflect that reality. Come be informed, inspired and equipped with tools to begin your own journey towards celebrating the image of God in yourself, in others, and ending racism and prejudice one conversation at a time.  ALL ARE WELCOME! Click here to RSVP!

Learning to Listen, "Stories of Immigration"

  • Church of the Living Lord

InterVarsity's NYCUP exists to develop leaders with the character and capacity to change the world; and then commission them to do so. We believe that all people are made in the image of God, created to work, flourish, rule and create. Yet, we live in a world where that is profoundly difficult especially for those on the margins. One rich, diverse group of people that is consistently pressed out are immigrants to this country. 

How can we make just policies unless we have relationships with those that these policies affect? How can we see one another rightly as women and men made in the image of God?Come and listen to the stories of immigrants, their journeys to the United States and what life looks like when someone is undocumented, fleeing violence, or waiting years for a visa; and how we are to respond as followers of Jesus!

Teach Us How To Pray

InterVarsity's New York City Urban Project exists to develop leaders with the character and capacity to change the world; and then commission them to do so. "Teach Us How to Pray" was developed to be a multi-denominational guide for Holy Spirit-led, God-centered, biblical prayer meetings. Prayer meetings do not have to be boring, poorly attended, or just an add-on during the week. Instead, prayer should be vital to a person’s prayer life, core to small group bible studies and a staple witnessing communities. Come and experience a guided worship, prayer and meditation that will equip you for a vibrant personal and corporate prayer life. This event is free and open to the public! PLEASE RSVP HERE

Worship will be led by Courtney Wong, Jonathan Walton and guest musicians from New Life Fellowship and other congregations in NYC. Our focus will be intercession against labor and sexual exploitation. If you have any questions or concerns, please email nycurbanproject@gmail.com. RSVP HERE!

Why Christians Must Seek Justice and Shalom

  • New Life Fellowship (Sanctuary)

InterVarsity's New York City Urban Project exists to develop leaders with the character and capacity to change the world; and then commission them to do so.


Isaiah 1:17 calls us to learn to do right, seek justice, and plead the case of the orphan, the widow and the fatherless. But how do we practically do that? In New York City labor and sexual exploitation, homelessness, educational inequality and other injustices make seeking justice difficult. What does the Gospel have to say about our suffering and how can we respond in word, deed and with God as our power? 

Come and hear from Jonathan Walton, the founder of the LoGOFF Movement and director of InterVarsity's New York City Urban Project how Jesus speaks to our suffering and compels us to respond in love and action. And, hear from Shandra Woworuntu, founder of Mentari and survivor of human trafficking.
