Students with The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI) come from a variety of backgrounds. Urban leaders are men, women, African American, white, latino, older, younger and everything in between.
It brings joy to my heart to tell you about James Jeffery who has recently graduated from The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI) of Fresno.
I am humbled by the calling to empower the urban poor to be leaders for the Kingdom in Los Angeles.
"Because of my prison experience and my prison history and my background in addiction, I can really relate to the type of people TUMI serves."
A few months ago I had the honor to sit and listen to someone who was in prison for a number of years. He shared with me how he and his church in prison were encountering Jesus like never before.
