TechMission Programs: Training People to Transform

Our Strategy

Through City Vision University and City Vision Internships, we build up the human capital of the Christian social services sector.

Our Programs

City Vision University

City Vision University is our accredited online university that provides four bachelor's degrees, in Christian social services and urban ministry, as well as Business, and an MBA. It has over 150 student enrollments annually, and is accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission, with affiliate membership in the Association for Biblical Higher Education. City Vision University was established in 1998 to provide practical online education to Christians serving the poor.

City Vision Internships 

In the past 10 years, we have placed over 500 full-time interns and 68,000+ volunteers in hundreds of Christian ministries. A few years ago, we chose to end our 9-year partnership with AmeriCorps (called TechMission Corps). We developed City Vision Internships based on the AmeriCorps model, but without AmeriCorps funds, so we could innovate, focus more on our faith distinctives, and expand to serve more organizations.

TechMission Online

TechMission Online is our consulting and incubation arm, which operates several programs that either help build capacity for those serving under-resourced communities or else address needs often faced in these communities. ChristianVolunteering.org was a website with the goal of increasing the number and quality of volunteers serving in Christian social services. We do this by providing online volunteer matching which makes it easier for them to find volunteer service opportunities (similar to how job sites like Monster.com help people find jobs). Since its launch in September 2006, the site matched thousands of volunteers to volunteer opportunities, and had thousands of volunteer listings. Its successor program is our Christian Grants Directory. Additionally, we host the SafeFamilies.org website, which has resources on how to fight Internet pornography and use the Internet safely with your family.
