World Impact Stories
We are a Christian missions organization committed to evangelizing, equipping and empowering the urban poor. We tell stories of our multi-faceted work through a variety of media. See stories from our neighborhoods, schools, camps, medical clinics and more.
“World Impact and TUMI breathed new life into me when I surrendered to Jesus Christ while in prison. They provided vision, they provided hope, and they provided me with a unapologetic Perspective on the Gospel message which changed the entire trajectory of my life.”– Michael T. Vander Horst
“I first learned about Jesus when I was a little boy living in Chester, Pennsylvania. Everyone that grew up with me during those days knows that World Impact saved my life, keeping me out of trouble when all hell was breaking loose around me.”– Minister Duke Toler
“I have learned to trust in the Lord and that nothing is impossible with Him. God has heard my prayers. I have seen families being restored; people winning their life-long battles with alcoholism and drug abuse; teenagers learning that God is faithful. It is a blessing to serve with World Impact.”– Jessica Moore
“Through all the studying and teaching, God has used TUMI as medicine for my soul and spiritual growth.”– Zoila Sánchez
“For 10 years, I struggled greatly with my calling and ministry. I was on the verge of giving up and walking away from the ministry when I heard about World Impact. It brings tears to my eyes every time I think about what World Impact means to my community and me. I am forever grateful and overwhelmed with joy and hope.”– Rev. Desmond Wedderburn
“World Impact understands urban ministry in a way very few others do. Their intentional focus on indigenous leaders is an amazing asset, and I am honored to be in partnership with this ministry.”– Chris Brooks
