TUMI commencement ceremonies represent the culmination of hard work, extraordinary achievement, and sacrifice made by our graduates. They have rigorously applied themselves to the Word of God, to the principles of Christian ministry, and to the cultivation of the skills necessary for leadership among God's people.
TUMI graduates have spent over 250 hours in the classroom and have easily spent 2 or 3 times that many hours studying, reading books, preparing exegetical papers, organizing presentations, and participating in ministry projects that invest their learning into the life of their church, ministry, or people around them. During the completion of their degree, they took approximately 100 tests, memorized scores of Scriptures, answered innumerable questions in the classroom, and wrestled with integrating theological truth into their day-to-day life and ministry. They did this, in most cases, while working full-time jobs, serving in church leadership, and very often managing marriage and family life as well.
Commencement ceremonies give our Institute a timely opportunity to affirm our students' calling and gifts in the presence of friends, family, and colleagues - expressing our confidence in their work and ability to serve as leaders in the body of Christ.
Congratulations to all of our graduates!
