The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI) Capstone Program, a ministry of World Impact, is a seminary-level biblical curriculum which is being used effectively to equip ministry leaders who might not otherwise have access to a biblical education. The 16 modules provide the most essential knowledge and skills for effective ministry and church leadership, making it an excellent tool to prepare students to be  ministers of the gospel of Christ.

We have TUMI classes in several areas:

  • Fellowship Community Church in Centennial – Tuesday night
  • Grace of the Lord Bible Fellowship in Aurora – Wednesday night
  • Open Door Ministries in Denver – Thursday morning
  • Open Door Ministries (ROP) in Aurora – Thursday night

We are now taking applications for the next module at several Denver Metro locations. Contact Chaplain Kris at 303-956-7898 for locations, days, and times.


Investing in a prisoner’s life—often considered worthless by outsiders—with the love of Christ Jesus and with a planned journey to Christian leadership, provides joy beyond explanation. At several prisons in Colorado, we have amazing TUMI students who have developed as leaders—men and women transformed to use for His glory—serving time behind bars. There is revival going on as these TUMI students lead Bible studies in their cells, invite inmates to attend church with them, minister to them during hard times or loss, and so much more. Some of the prison church leaders have asked TUMI students to preach sermons, give their testimony, serve on their church Board, and lead, play, or sing on the worship team.


TUMI class in India

Mike and Mary Dicke have a heart for starting international sites and raising up indigenous pastors to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ into their villages. So far, they have started TUMI in India, Nepal, Ethiopia, South Africa, Republic of the Congo, and Costa Rica.

If you or your church would like to sponsor the cost of TUMI curriculum for international TUMI students, please contact Mike at 316-200-007.

Christians in India are hungry for the Word of God and finding practical ways of incorporating Christ into their lives. Mike and Mary Dicke have traveled back to India several times to start TUMI classes and to build a school and shelter for the TUMI community.
