Welcome to World Impact Bay Area

Statistics for our West Oakland location

World Impact is a national non-profit organization focused on strengthening the urban church and transforming under-resourced communities. Our Bay Area region consists of three key locations: San Francisco, Oakland, and Richmond, CA.

We recently launched a TUMI satellite location at our Richmond site. TUMI is World Impact's seminary level education course aimed at future urban pastors and leaders. The video below features an interview with the founder or TUMI, Dr. Don Davis.
