The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI) is training designed for urban church leaders already serving in ministry positions who desire higher level education normally offered only at a seminary college.

 

New Community Rising is proud to be an affiliate and sponsor of The Urban Ministry Institute. This is seminary with an urban bent.  TUMI offers a robust training curriculum focusing on biblical studies, theology and ethics, Christian ministry, and urban mission. Our goal is to equip students to step into any ministry role they are called upon to serve. Each course places students in a mentor balanced classroom along with a broad spectrum of other ministry leaders where they network, share, and learn through the experience of coursework and relationship building with others.

Acceptance criteria consists primarily of pastoral recommendation and recognition regarding faithfulness to the Lord, the Church and leadership in ministry. Course costs are nominal. Completion of all course work is currently only about $2,000. These factors provide a high level of accessibility to coursework by non-typical students such as those who might otherwise lack the necessary formal education, time or financial resources to enter into a seminary college.

Courses may be taken in any order, allowing students to target the training they know they need first. Transcripts can be transferred to any of the over 280 TUMI satellites nationally, allowing our students to move freely about the country as work or ministry calls while continuing their educational track.
