The Ministry in the City HUB is a national initiative based at City Seminary of New York built to support the flourishing of ministry in the city in North America and beyond. We gather and connect pastors, artists, and leaders of congregations, faith-based organizations and theological institutions concerned with the future of Christian faith in our cities. We share resources, ideas, and practices for life-giving ministry through a learning network, research, and grants.


We recently launched three new invitational grant-making initiatives: Strengthening Pastoral Formation and Church Life in Ministry in the City (fall 2022), Affinity Working Groups (winter 2023), and Collaborative Seed Grants (winter 2023). Read more here

City Seminary of New York was awarded a renewal grant of $15 million to continue the work the Ministry in the City HUB. Read more here
