SLIP is a residential program that uses New York City as a classroom to provide leadership, vocational clarity, and practical steps towards whole-life stewardship. SLIP will work with students to identify full-time internships that connect their area of interest or demonstrated capacity with NYC non-profits and traditional discipleship ministries with a focus on restorative biblical justice; as well as those interested in entering fashion, business, medicine or another sector of the marketplace. Our past partners have included Nomi Network, Restore NYC, Rogison Institute at Cornell-Weill Medical School, and professionals in video and photography. For example, students desiring to see redemption of sex-trafficking victims but were also entrepreneurial were partnered with NYCUP alumni who started Nomi Network. Or those interested in careers in education invested efforts at Operation Exodus. We also work and serve alongside Christ-centered ethnically and economically diverse churches including Calvary Baptist, Redeemer Presbyterian, Christ Crucified Fellowship, Christian Cultural Center, Overseas Chinese Mission Church and others to provide a fuller picture of the body of Christ of which we are a part. At SLIP, we aim to commission leaders with (a) key leadership competencies, (b) a heart for ministry engagement, (c) vocational discernment, and (d) spiritual formation and discipline. Students will be oriented towards pursuing mission in the marketplace and serving in traditional discipleship ministry, whether full time or part-time. The program will culminate with an invitation to opportunities such as InterVarsity Staff, overseas and domestic missions, seminary studies or to fashion, business, media or another discerned field.
