The Micah Project



The Micah Project is a ten-month discipleship experience in a community setting to explore church and urban ministry, and grow in leadership development.

Key aspects of the internship include:

  • volunteering in their local NFC or FACE ministry
  • participating in a house meetings to study core content curriculum on urban issues
  • meeting regularly with the Program Director, a mentor from North Fresno Church, and intentionally spending time with roommates and in the community.
  • exploring various avenues of service, including hospitality
  • participating in various training events, including weekend retreats and workshops
  • attending the annual Christian Community Development Association conference

Students live in community together in the Micah Project apartments, and are able to hold a part-time job and/or work on other classes and studies through the extent of the internship.


Our Purpose 

The Micah Project was designed to help North Fresno Church (NFC) glorify God by introducing people to Jesus Christ, serving people in need, and helping each other follow Him in our daily lives; and also help FACE (Fresno Area Community Enterprises), the non-profit launched by NFC, address the whole needs of families living on the margins primarily in the Robinson Neighborhood.

Our Mission

The Micah Project seeks to develop and empower young leaders in the context of biblical community through church and urban ministry. The goal is to see graduates of the Micah Project continue the journey of service, advocacy, and incarnational living for the rest of their lives. They grow in and demonstrate a deep love for Jesus Christ and his church, the broader world as represented in a local neighborhood, and for the poor and disenfranchised.
