Week at a Glance
Mondays, 5:30-7:30pm @ 5202 Orange Avenue, San Diego, CA 92115
Every student should be a part of a positive life-changing community that is exciting, fun and adventurous. Every Monday night, all high school students are invited to join us at our City Heights campus for free food, crazy games, and a message about life and God. You can even look forward to special off campus trips and events like a Padres game, Boomers, SDSU Aztec Bowling, or Beach Day. You just never really know where we’re going or what we’re doing, so come and find out! We currently provide rides from Mission Bay High School at 5:00pm. Rides home are provided for every student that attends. Please contact Justin Phillips (City Heights East) or Kathy Pham (City Heights West) for more information!
Tuesdays, 3:30-5:00pm @ 5202 Orange Avenue, San Diego, CA 92115
Our goal is to impact students from early on in their lives all the way through college. That journey begins with Little Life, where elementary school students are walked up to the Orange Ave. campus by our leaders for food, games, songs and a message about God. Every summer we offer Vacation Bible School (VBS) for these students for more opportunities to learn about God. Students are walked or driven home by adult leaders after every club. Please contact Carmen Munoz (619.857.9647) or Naomi Shinnick (619.988.0319) for more information!
Wednesdays, 12:30-2:00pm @ 5202 Orange Avenue, San Diego, CA 92115
This program is very similar in style to our High School student outreach but is geared towards middle school students. We believe that impacting children earlier in their lives will yield more change and long term impact. So UrbanLife Middle still has all the same crazy games, great food and messages but it is all adjusted to the issues and challenges that our young friends are dealing with. All students from all middle schools are welcome! However, as of now, there are no rides available. Please contact Romin Irani for more info or with any questions!
Wednesdays, 6:00-8:00pm @ 5202 Orange Avenue, San Diego, CA 92115
IOBLife (Inward Life, Outward Life, and Beyond Life) is the small group discipleship night of UrbanLife Ministries, Inc. Our vision is to create a safe place for students to find Jesus INWARD, at work in their lives and hearts; while joining His OUTWARD work in the City Heights community. It is our hope that students are transformed into community changers in their homes, schools, and neighborhoods, as they find Jesus doing things BEYOND “what they can ask for or even imagine”. Please contact Kathy Pham for information and questions!
Thursdays, 7:00-9:00pm @ 5202 Orange Avenue, San Diego, CA 92115
It doesn’t matter if you’re in college or not, you’re still welcome to CollegeLife at UrbanLife as long as you’re not in high school! This is for students who were part of UrbanLife Senior High, are now graduated and want to still be part of UrbanLife or those who have never been to an UrbanLife event. These nights will be more relaxed than our high school nights and will look different every week, ranging from games to discussions about God and life. CollegeLife seeks to provide students with a chance to dig deeper in their faith and its application to their lives. Check it out and contact Chris Brewster or Kevin Weiser with any questions!
Every other Sunday, 12:30-2:00pm @ 5202 Orange Avenue, San Diego, CA 92115 (in the Unit)
We have committed every other Sunday on our calendar to training and developing our students into the neighborhood and world-changing leaders they are meant to be. Adult leaders and staff attend this meeting as well and meet together with our student leaders, working alongside them. These meetings include Scripture study, spiritual disciplines, prayer, business, and team meetings. If you are interested in participating, please contact Jake Medcalf for more information!
UrbanLife Junior Leadership
Sundays, 11:00am-12:00pm @ 5202 Orange Avenue, San Diego, CA 92115 (in the Unit)
We believe all students have the ability to be a leader in their personal lives and in their communities. As much as possible, we want to provide leadership training and opportunities for students to serve their peers. From designing flyers to preparing a meal, students are invited to plan UrbanLife programs and events with Urbanlife Staff each week. If you are interested in participating, please contact Jake Medcalf for more information!
