Union Gospel Missionâ€™s Fusion is designed specifically for youth and college groups to engage in holistic service-learning and leadership development in an urban setting. It includes an Internship program as well as Plunge experiences.
The word â€śfusionâ€ť indicates the change a substance undergoes to become molten. Molten is produced by melting a material in order to mold it. Our passion is to have young leaders shaped by relationships that press them to move beyond their borders of comfort and prior engagement. By training up young leaders to leverage their voice and influence to be advocates for the poor, we seek to cultivate co-laborers who are prophetic practitioners of biblical justice!
Mission: Â To inspire young people to be catalysts of biblical justice through an experience that challenges each to confront borders of comfort, examine worldviews, and dismantle walls of social separation.
Fusion Plunge is customized weeknight, weekend, and week-long experiences for youth and college students to engage in urban ministry. We integrate service, experiential learning, and biblical theology to promote understanding of false assumptions that hinder mutually transformative relationships with marginalized communities. Using UGM as a base, we partner with other organizations and churches, providing broad exposure to inspire missional living in whatever community you are placed.
This experience can be customized for adults.
