San Antonio Urban Programs wants to see *students transformed by the Gospel, *the renewal of the university and the city though God’s plan of reconciliation and justice, and *the development of lifelong world-changers seeking God’s purposes in the world.

We help students gain God's heart for mission, in part by forming long-lasting partnerships with ministries in San Antonio working with the underprivileged. There are two programs, each with a slightly different focus, a Spring Break Plunge and a Summer Program
