CRISTA-logo-vertical.jpgSeattle Urban Academy is a part of the CRISTA Family of Ministries

Seattle Urban Academy is a ministry of CRISTA, a family of ministries loving God by serving people worldwide in the areas of education, international relief & development, senior living, and media. Established in 1949 in Shoreline, Wash., CRISTA has grown from a small community into a family of seven unique ministries: World Concern, Christian Veterinary Mission, CRISTA Media, CRISTA Camps, CRISTA Senior Living, King's Schools, and Seattle Urban Academy.

CRISTA began as a prayer and a hope of founder Mike Martin to create a safe place for youth to come and hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. Over 60 years later, CRISTA has blossomed into a family of seven ministries that love God by serving eight million people in 30 countries every year.
