How to Start a Satellite
To begin a TUMI satellite you must have Christian leaders eager to receive biblical training, a person committed to coordinating the program (“site coordinator”), a functional office and classroom, a mentor to facilitate the leadership development process (the site coordinator can serve as mentor or a second volunteer can be recruited to serve as mentor), agreement with TUMI’s statement of faith, U.S. partner or sponsor (if located outside the United States). Upon approval, TUMI provides ready-to-use curriculum including a mentor’s guide and four hours of DVD teaching for each of the 16 modules, instructions on how to set up and maintain a satellite, certificate and diploma options, use of TUMI’s name and logo.

Because TUMI sites in prisons require a specialized understanding of prison culture, we require a supplementary prison application before you can start a TUMI class in a state or federal prison.
Through our partner satellites, TUMI offers TUMI designed program certificates for your students, as well as approved partner design certificates.
We partner with accredited liberal arts schools and seminaries who offer our students credit for the successful completion of the Capstone Curriculum.
