(Our “official” JPUSA page is HERE; this is our unofficial page!) Jesus People USA (JPUSA) is an intentional community of Christians. Begun in 1972 as part of the late-1960s Jesus movement, JPUSA traveled for a short time before settling into Chicago in the Spring of 1973. The communal group moved into Uptown in ’78, a ghetto area with its own fascinating history. JPUSA has remained in Uptown ever since. For a brief, incomplete history of JPUSA, see the nine-part “Life’s Lessons” also here on Wilson Station.
