TUMI Chester offered their first courses in September, 2007. With qualified and dedicated mentors, TUMI Chester has supported existing churches and World Impact's church-planting efforts by equipping and empowering urban leaders with seminary-level education. Since 2010, TUMI Chester has also been providing seminary-level training to qualified, Christian inmates, recommended by the Chaplain at the State Correctional Institute-Chester. Raj and Rebecca Lewis are establishing a SIAFU Leadership Home to help incarcerated TUMI students continue education, pursue ministry, and receive employment training. Dr. Rick Horne, TUMI site coordinator, in association with The Christian Counselling Educational Foundation, developed a pastoral counselling course for church leaders.
