For over twenty years World Impact and The Urban Ministry Institute have been equipping church planters working among the urban poor in the United States and around the world. Thousands of urban church leaders have received church plant training during this time and more than 150 church plants have been commissioned in partnership with local churches, associations, and denominations.
World Impact and The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI) are looking for partners who are called to plant new churches among the poor. During the next six years World Impact and TUMI hope to see at least 300 new churches planted in America’s inner cities. In order to reach this goal, TUMI is also looking for partners to sponsor and host at least thirty Evangel School of Urban Church Planting between now and 2021.
The Evangel School of Urban Church Planting provides a tool for urban churches, denominations, and mission agencies to host a contextualized church plant school in their city or region for those God has called to plant churches among the urban poor.
