CUBM celebrates its graduates


The Center for Urban Biblical Ministries acknowledged their 2020 Bible School Graduates at their Point Breeze Campus on May 23. The abbreviated ceremony, which in the past included a celebratory luncheon, was coordinated by Executive Director, Rev. Helen Jackson and her administrative staff. Pennsylvania COVID-19 crowd guidelines limited the program activities to participants only, no family or friends were permitted to attend.


Though the numbers were greatly reduced, the graduates were full of joyful tears and quite a few spirit-filled hallelujahs as the instructors shared words and prayers of their accomplishments. The approximately two-hour event ended with an outdoor photoshoot and presentation of each graduate’s individual names displayed on custom- made banners.

CUBM offers faith-based Geneva College associate degrees in Christian Ministry, Business Administration, Human Resources and Leadership and is located within the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary at 7418 Penn Ave.
