The Bible verse that inspired Gerald Austin's passion, and serves as TCUM's guiding principle is from Jeremiah 29:7: "Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have sent you . . . Pray to the Lord for it, because as the city prospers, you will too .

Rev. Gerald Austin knew from personal experience there was hope for those in the city longing to break free from the cycle of poverty. He grew up one of nine children, raised by a single parent in a housing project in Birmingham, Alabama, experiencing first-hand the city's needs and problems. Through God's grace, the love of family, education and determination, he was able to emerge from poverty to a life of relative ease and comfort, eventually becoming an electronics engineer.
The Austins moved with their six children back to the inner city in 1985 to better serve the public housing community from which he emerged.
