ARC@egc is the growing Applied Research and Consulting division of the Emmanuel Gospel Center (EGC). EGC’s mission is to understand and nurture vitality in urban churches and communities. ARC@egc furthers this mission by using applied research to understand both the changing dynamics of urban communities and the resources and programs needed to support urban churches in their work. In addition, ARC@egc provides information and program models so urban leaders can make decisions and do their work more effectively.
EGC defines “applied research” as learning in community for the purposes of taking action. Thus, ARC@egc trains and supports Christian leaders who are already learning and serving together, both within and outside of “church walls.”
We do this by helping Christian leaders, churches and their networks:
- Mine valuable data relevant to the wellbeing of their communities
- Identify community assets and needs
- Collectively develop and implement strategies and training to further community welfare and vitality
- Recursively collect feedback for reflection and course correction
Our major foci include:
- Gender justice
- Youth studies and urban youth workers training
- Public health and wellness

Part-time internships available: 8-20 hrs./wk., hours negotiable.
