At Envision Chicago, also known as “Chitown Envision,” we provide a unique life transforming experience in an environment that develops and deploys emerging leaders.
“I keep hearing stories of what God did while we were there! Just amazing. I have had two adult leaders in the past 2 days that shared that they are feeling a call to ministry, that God has been speaking during and since the trip. These two have very successful jobs and are asking what is next and asking how to transition into full time ministry.”
Although we serve and collaborate broadly across the city of Chicago, we have two primary ministry locations.
In Rogers Park, 1 in 5 families live below the poverty line. More than 80% of students in the public school system come from low-income households. There is also a large, and growing, population of LGBTQ+. There are more than 40 primary languages spoken in our community.
West Ridge is often referred to as “Little India.” The business district of Little India is a huge attraction to tourists— featuring various foods, wares, and clothing from South Asia. Little India is home to a large population of Indians, Pakistanis, Nepalese, and other South Asians. The community is also home to refugees from countries that have little to no access to the gospel.
The diversity of Rogers Park and Little India give us the unique opportunity to share the gospel of Christ with a very diverse group of people who have little to no exposure to the Gospel.
