Powerful movements maintain their momentum by equipping leaders to carry on the mission. The Urban Ministry Institute was established as the national training arm of World Impact. These church plants together with urban church associations are a prime source of potential leaders called to service in the urban church. The Urban Ministry Institute of Los Angeles (TUMI L.A.) partners with these churches in order to equip leaders for the urban mission. Existing Bible institutes and seminaries exclude urban leaders by stressing traditional academics and by carrying a price tag far beyond the means of many. TUMI's Certificate of Christian Leadership studies is economically andintellectually accessible. Our CAPSTONE curriculum is a seminary-level program of practical theological studies thatemphasizes a narrative approach to the scriptures, an orallearning methodology, and the use of symbolic visual aids for easy memorization.
