Welcome to the 
ROC School of Urban Ministry

The ROC School of Urban Ministry (RSUM) is a private Christian school designed to train students for Christian ministries. Our purpose to provide a spiritual, academic, and cultural atmosphere that will produce well-rounded Christian leaders.

We provide substantial hands-on ministry training in a diverse urban environment, which gives our students the practical experience necessary for success in ministry.

We believe to be successful in ministry you need to focus on three primary areas of development.. The spiritual must come first in the life of a Christian. Daily chapel services with on-fire preaching provides a portion of this emphasis. This atmosphere is maintained in the classroom where every teacher is a dedicated Christian and soulwinner.

Our second emphasis is on a strong academic curriculum. The curriculum provides a strong theological and practical foundation for ministry in the urban community. It is designed to not only to teach and preach to the masses, but also provides the knowledge and discernment  needed to reach out to the lost in a diverse urban community.

Thirdly, our curriculum emphasizes the practical side of church ministry. We teach the techniques, methods, programs, and philosophies behind the ministry of The Richmond Outreach Center (ROC). RSUM students have an incredible opportunity to work in the ministries of The ROC and to learn the why's and how's of this successful ministry.
