About Us

The Memphis Center for Urban Theological Studies (MCUTS) is a non-denominational educational institution formed in 2000 through the collaborative effort of the Memphis Leadership Foundation, Neighborhood Christian Centers, Hope Christian Community Foundation, Second Presbyterian Church and Hope Presbyterian Church.

MCUTS exists to provide quality, accredited, affordable and accessible education to students interested in the transformation of churches and communities through the love of Christ. Through educating leaders in lower income neighborhoods, as well as educating those wishing to serve those neighborhoods, MCUTS transforms lives who transform communities.
