The City Gates Initiative...

The City Gates Initiative fulfills Ashland Theological Seminary's commitment to serve Jesus-followers whose everyday work presents an opportunity for influence in the fabric of life and culture beyond the church. City Gates has a perspective of the kingdom that places work within the very heart of change in the world. We give you a new lens through which to view the kingdom and the restoring potential of your everyday work. And we provide a specific path that prepares you to faithfully fulfill the role God has offered to you within that work.
