About Our College
Shifting the Paradigm for Servant Leadership Education
Overcomers International Ministries in partnership with the Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI) will launch its first satellite Bible College at Pursue Church fall of 2018 in St, Louis, MO and at CELIE Church in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is our mission to multiply laborers for the harvest by making Christian Leadership Training accessible to students, at a lower cost than traditional seminarian learning centers. It is designed so neither location nor cost will preclude the participant from experiencing excellence in education.
Our parent: In summer of 1995, TUMI was launched in Wichita, Kansas, by Dr. Don Davis and Rev. Terry Cornett, missionaries with World Impact, TUMI is dedicated to equipping leaders and pastors through theological education for the urban church.
There are currently 310 campuses in 20 countries. If you are a student enrolled in one of our educational facilities, you may transfer your courses to another facility. If you move and/or desire to change locations, your transcript can follow you.
Pursue Bible College (TUMI) courses will transfer to the following colleges and Universities upon completion of the Capstone Curriculum:
Lancaster Bible College
City Vision University
International Christian College & Seminary
Fuller Theological Seminary
NYACK - New York Christian College
Although Pursue College (TUMI) has chosen to be and remain non-accredited in order to keep our resources available to deserving urban leaders who seek training, our commitment to academic excellence and quality of leadership education is a priority. Our commitment is demonstrated through our partnership with accredited liberal arts schools and seminaries who offer our students credit for the successful completion of the Capstone Curriculum.
This educational service is provided by Overcomers International Ministries as a division of Pursue Church's Christian Education Training & Development Program.
