In lieu of accepting donations at our offices, we’ve opted for a more COVID-friendly way to gather snack supplies. We have put together an Amazon Wish List of snacks and would love your help gathering them all! If you are interested in helping, click the link below for the list of items needed. Thank you for your continued support of the Urban Impact Foundation!

urban impact fellows program

The UIF Fellows program offers young adults a one-year fellowship program studying and training under UIF as well as seeking God’s leading and guidance as to their ministry calling. For this year, we are looking for housing for some of our Fellows.

If you would be interested in offering housing, or if you need more information, contact Bruce Volstad at bruce.volstad@uifpgh.org.

The purpose of the Fellows program is to glorify God by facilitating a year-long fellowship program.  The goals for the Fellows program are to:

1) Develop young leaders in Christ.

2) Help young leaders identify and develop their areas of giftedness.

3) Help young leaders identify their calling.

4) Equip young leaders for ministry.

5) Teach young leaders Christian Orthodoxy and Worldview.

6) Help young leaders memorize and meditate on Scripture.

7) Provide experience for young ministers.

8) Develop trained and equipped missionaries for any area of the mission field.
