Central Detroit Christian exists to empower people and create positive opportunities in the central Detroit Community. We do this through Education, Employment & Economic Development.

TUMI of Detroit

The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI) of Detroit provides seminary-level instruction through a 16 module curriculum with courses in Biblical Studies, Theology and Ethics, Christian Ministry and Urban Mission. In January 2012 Central Detroit Christian CDC began teaching TUMI in Milan prison. It has been an amazing opportunity to educate inmates about the Word of God! Please keep the teachers and students in your prayers as God is shaping and changing the inmates for His glory!

The Kingsmen

Kingsmen is a weekly gathering of men in the city of Detroit, though our goal is statewide expansion, that is designed to encourage them to develop into godly men of virtue. The Kingsmen meet at 6pm on Tuesday evenings in The CDC office. The men go through the “Authentic Manhood” series the east side group meets on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. men go through the “Authentic Manhood” series which is based on the original “Men’s Fraternity” material created by Dr. Robert Lewis. These men’s groups promote camaraderie and accountability. Men get a biblical perspective of their “story”. It equips them to embrace how their past has affected their present and prepares them to deal with whatever the future may hold.
