IMI Certificate Programs 

The Idaho Ministry Institute offers several Certificate Programs. Each program has it's own requirements. Single class certifications and complete program certrificates are available. 

As an approved TUMI Satellite the Idaho Ministry Institute offers programs utilizing the TUMI Capstone Curriculum and unique IMI certification programs designed for ministry leaders in the state of Idaho. 

Christian Leadership Studies Certificate (CLS)

The most popular certificate offered by The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI) is the “Certificate in Christian Leadership Studies (CLS),” which is conferred upon all students who complete our 16-module, 32-credit-hour program consisting of the Capstone Curriculum. Students from an approved TUMI satellite in good standing are eligible to receive this certificate, provided the curriculum protocols are followed from an approved mentor.

But besides the Capstone (CLS) program, TUMI offers other certificate programs, welcoming the submission of unique designs that meet the needs of our partners as they train their leaders.

Certificate in Urban Theological Studies (CUTS)

The second most widely-used certificate program is the “Certificate in Urban Theological Studies (CUTS),” which is also a 32-credit-hour program. The difference between this certificate (CUTS) and the Capstone (CLS) certificate is that an approved satellite can work with TUMI to design a unique combination of courses, drawing from three sources:

  1. TUMI’s Capstone Curriculum (an integrated set of 16 fixed courses that will not be added to in the future)

  2. TUMI’s Foundations Series (an on-going list of TUMI-taught courses covering various topics)

  3. Courses developed by an approved satellite (“Site Developed Course” [SDC])

Diploma Programs

Idaho Ministry Institute Diploma Programs 

Ministerial Studies Diploma (MSD)

TUMI students who have earned a CLS or CUTS may seek TUMI’s advanced program, the Ministerial Studies Diploma by completing an additional 32 credit hours of study (64 credit hours in total). Each approved TUMI satellite can work with us to design a unique combination of courses, drawing from three sources (Capstone, Foundations, and SDC).

The program begins with the completion of a required course: the Ministry Assessment Project. This course helps a student assess their gifts, calling, and ongoing direction in ministry and brings their pastoral or denominational supervisor in the process of designing their diploma program and coordinating it with their ministry responsibilities. For some, this diploma may form the basis for licensing or ordination by the candidate's church or mission.

IMI Site Designed Certificate Programs 

As an approved TUMI Satellite the Idaho Ministry Institute offers Site Developed Courses and Programs unique for the Idaho area and ministry needs. IMI also provides various eight-week courses relating to a specific focus of ministry. Each program has its own set of requirements for completion, and each class certification is based on the student-leader's satisfactory completion of the set standards for each class. 

Community Chaplain Certificate (CCC)

The Community Chaplain Certificate is a course in partnership with the Idaho Chaplains Association (ICA). Each course, and the overall program has been approved by the ICA for the equipping and training of ICA Community Chaplains.

IMI Class Based Certificate Programs 

These classes do not require an application. However, before signing up please prayerfully consider your involvement. Part of what makes the IMI experience life-changing is the interaction with others. The fellowship students have with one another is

what help the unique setting of IMI and the continued attendance and participation is expected for every student. 

Each class certification focuses on a subject within the Church that equips leaders to be ready to  give an answer to all who ask (1 Peter 3:15), and to be those who, "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (2 Tim 2:15). Each class is designed to make the student better at defending and sharing their faith in a spirit of humility as it is written in 1 Peter 3:15, "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear."
