Contextualized Urban Theological Education - Gordon Conwell

Diverse & Distinctly Urban

Has Christ called you to preach, serve, or work in the city and for the city? Are you looking for deeper resources to explore God’s Word and your local context? Then join us through the Campus for Urban Ministry Education (CUME), an exceptional community of Christians more diverse than its already rich surrounding context in the city.

While all of Gordon-Conwell seeks to be a thoughtful, loving, Christ-centered community of global discipleship, at CUME, discipleship takes on a distinctly urban approach for adult learners in diverse communities. Programs are offered on weekends and weeknights, either in Boston or 100% online. 

Urban Ministry
