Urban Academy (URBACAD) offers discipleship and leadership training for everyone who is serious about serving Jesus Christ. The program uses principles and materials developed overseas for training pastors and leaders. It enables congregations to develop their own leadership for ministry in their own neighborhoods.

Immanuel has adopted the Urbacad material as our tool to help people grow from a new life in Christ to a fully committed disciple of Christ.
