School Of Urban Missions

**Student Life**Each day at SUM is designed to promote the spiritual and social development of our students. Students learn life skills through their association with other students and faculty members from different countries, cultures, and ethnic backgrounds.**Spiritual Life**The school day begins with a time of community worship and prayer. At mid-day, spiritual growth is further enhanced during Chapel service. Students enter into a dynamic time of worship and are challenged by the life changing proclamation of the Word of God. Each Student is encouraged to have a consistent devotional life including fasting, prayer, and Biblical study.**Social Development**The SUM environment stimulates an opportunity for Bible-based social growth. Students are yoked together by their consecration and dedication to impact the world for Jesus Christ. The common commitment provides an ideal setting for the development of covenant relationships for life.**SUM offers a One-Year Ministry Certificate, a two year Associate of Arts degree, or a three year Bachelor of Arts degree. Each degree offeres a concentration in Biblical Studies, Church Planting, Pastoral Ministry, Global Missions and Youth Ministry. Each academic certification features five curricular divisions: Bible, General Education, Missions, Theology, Applied Theology (Practical Ministry), and Field Experience.

**Faculty**Our instructors are chosen for their educational expertise, should Biblical theology, consistent walk with Christ, and years of proven ministry experience. Their dedication is unprecedented.**Classroom**The classroom provides the bridge between an exciting learning environment and practical application in our urban communities. Unique insight into academic approaches for reaching urban communities occurs when students from diverse ethnic and church backgrounds interact during SUM classes.**Real Life Situations**We believe that no school can adequately prepare men and women for front line ministry without first exposing them to the stresses and pressures of real life situations. The student ministry program at SUM is designed to provide real life ministry experience. Each week students feel the pain of lost humanity and learn to deal with a multitude of urban issues from a Biblical perspective.**Mentoring**Each student has the privilege of co- laboring with SUM faculty, local pastors and ministers directly impacting our urban communities with the Gospel. This mentoring provides a vital opportunity for students to glean insight and practical experience from those who are on the cutting edge of urban ministry.
