Our Nature

At the foundation of the urban millenium we are:

  • A virtual learning hub for networks of workers among the urban poor
  • A mobile training hub for city leadership teams that bring revitalization to cities.

    Our Mission

  • To foster the emergence of prophetic leadership clusters in global cities through multiplying training of leaders of indigenous movements among the poor and among the elites who influence their contexts.

Our Activities

Grassroots - facilitate development of leaders of urban poor movements utilizing five educational processes:

  • Story-telling gatherings of transformative leaders among the urban poor locally, regionally and globally.
  • Developing the Encarnação Network of urban poor movement leaders globally.
  • Developing a global network of Urban Poor Trainers to teach modules through learning networks, the web and CDRoms
  • Establishing the MA in Transformational Urban Leadership for urban poor leaders with partnering tertiary institutions in each continent, resulting in engagement and resourcing of faith communities and civil society organizations in cooperative economics, working with the marginalized, advocacy, engagement in land tenure struggles, community health, establishing slum educational processes, and social entrepreneurship.
  • Publishing best case practices of movement leadership, and theological reflection on these.

Urban elites - assist city leadership teams to envision purposes for cities through three educational processes:

  • ·Developing, delivering and reproducing training for city leaders and teams
  • ·Utilizing citywide, regional and global consultations of city leaders to integrate vision for cities as a vehicle for leadership training.
  • Publishing prophetic and strategic envisioning for cities as outcomes from these processes.

Catalyze cultural revitalization that results in citywide transformation through:

  • Integration of values and prophetic vision from diverse spiritual and cultural roots so as to foster moral education of societal leaders resulting in expansion of transformative structures.
  • Spearheading deep thinking in the theory, theology and practice of citywide transformation within revitalization movements
