SUM Bible College and Theological Seminary

735 - 105th Ave, Oakland, CA 94603

School Details

SUM is a private, coeducational Bible College & Theological Seminary connected with its Pentecostal/Charismatic Christian community and seeks to generate a multi-cultural, multi-racial, and gender-inclusive fellowship empowered by the Holy Spirit. Evangelism, peacemaking, and reconciliation mark this fellowship. In 1987, George Neau pioneered an inner city church in the Baton Rouge area of Louisiana and began the college in his living room. The college was to be known as the School of Urban Missions (SUM). In 2011, the college changed its name to SUM Bible College & Theological Seminary. This name change heralds SUM’s new direction as evolving from a strictly urban focus to a evangelical worldwide emphasis.

SUM offers associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees in subjects related to biblical studies, ministry, and missions.
