Equipping leaders for the urban church
TUMI and LAST Ministry have shared goals of building the Kingdom of God by raising up Christ-centered servant leaders who are Biblically prepared, spiritually matured and technically competent to accomplish God’s work, especially among the poor and disadvantaged in our communities; and offering men and women hope for a changed life. LAST TUMI Satellite is offered to inmates at the Custody to Community Transitional Program in Sacramento. Classes are also open to the public.
The LAST TUMI Satellite provides seminary-level instruction through our 16 module curriculum with courses in Biblical Studies, Theology and Ethics, Christian Ministry, and Urban Mission. Classes began August 1, 2018, but you can start anytime a new module begins (see contact below for questions). Classes are held at the LAST Ministry office in Orangevale, California at 6326 Main Avenue, Suite 22, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.
For most in urban ministry, the idea of attending Bible College or seminary is virtually impossible. It is too expensive, offered far from their homes, and often does not relate to urban life and ministry. They cannot leave their jobs or their churches to give four years for ministry training.
Even if they could find a way to relocate, they would need to win the lottery or be befriended by someone who is rich, just to afford the education. Furthermore, many could not satisfy the academic requirements necessary for admission. Having given up on the idea of further training, these dear leaders do the best they can, often working a full-time job while pastoring a church that desperately needs more of their time and attention.
