The Emmanuel Gospel Center is a Christian non-profit committed to strengthening Christian leaders to serve urban communities.
Our Applied Research and Consulting Department conducts research within areas of broad community concern– gender justice, youth work, public health, and neighborhood studies. At EGC, “applied research” means learning in community for the purpose of taking action. Our research undergirds specific ministries at EGC, including those that serve people struggling with homelessness, survivors of human trafficking, church planters, refugees, and more.
BETA, or the Boston Emmanuel Training Academy, connects talented interns with urban ministry practitioners to conduct research that makes a difference. Three times each year, in sync with academic semesters (fall, spring, and summer), ARC selects a cohort of three to eight people. The BETA cohort is initially oriented and trained together and will continue to track each other’s progress through group meetings and research collaborations. By the end of the semester, each intern has learned new skills, completed several research goals, and gained an understanding for how his or her work directly supports EGC’s mission of strengthening Christian leaders to serve urban communities.
