School Of Urban Missions

I’ve had a great time this school year, and that year is quickly coming to an end. We’ve had fun while giving our best for the Lord.

SUM is a fully accredited Bible College that prepares men and women to impact cities for Christ. Our vision is to recruit and train indigenous leaders that produce change. We accomplish this through a commitment to academic excellence, practical hands on ministry, and personal mentoring. Our ministerial philosophy is driven by the statement of Jesus: “…and whosoever would be first among you, shall be SERVANT OF ALL.” (Mark 10:44–ASV)

School Of Urban Missions website is available for any questions you might have; (in case your wondering, financial aid is available, as well as many of the cohort programs offering student housing)

We have a lot of fun at SUM, but the parts that really stick out to me are the eternal moments… moments when lives are changed before my eyes; the moments when God’s Spirit is overwhelming, those are the moments I remember.

There are currently (as of 2011 summer trimester) 6 cohort locations in Louisiana. They are located in 3 different cites: West Monroe, La; Shreveport, La; and New Orleans, La. There are countless ministry opportunities within each home church, and each location has specific ministry focuses that make each cohort location distinct.

A quick list of training and serving opportunities: Children’s Ministry, TV Evangelism Ministry, Homeless Ministry, Media Ministry, Prison Ministry, Seniors Ministry, Louisiana Downs Ministry, Bourbon Street Ministry, Traveling Youth Evangelism, Street Preaching Ministry, and many more….
