The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI) of Dallas

    TUMI Dallas is a satellite of The Urban Ministry Institute. We believe that God is moving in our city and preparing men and women to be powerful leaders in our urban churches. We desire to be used as an instrument for equipping and training urban leaders as they carry the mantle of leadership in shepherding God's flock and advancing God's kingdom in the city.


    The purpose of TUMI Dallas is to train and equip urban leaders, urban church planters, and World Impact missionaries with biblical, theological and ministerial education in order to advance the Kingdom of God by planting culturally conducive churches. Therefore, our primary calling is not to grow large churches, but to multiply dynamic churches!


    It is our vision to see an urban church planting movement begin in Dallas among the poor and oppressed. One of the ways we see this being accomplished is by offering excellent resources to you at an affordable price. As the urban population in America continues to grow, we believe that the urban church leader will be an essential part of advancing God's Kingdom in the city. Therefore, we will do all that we can to equip and empower these leaders.
