History – Universal Truth Center [cached]

On the same day, Rev. Colemon appointed Rev. Mary A. Tumpkin, as UTC's founding minister.

Rev. Colemon dispatched UFBL-licensed teachers and ministers the Reverend Dr. Helen W. Carry and the Reverend Alberta Ware to Miami to train and assist Rev. Tumpkin with the development of the new church.
The first two UFBL-ordained ministers to serve with Rev. Tumpkin at UTC were the Revs.
After multiple relocations, Rev. Tumpkin and UTC's Board of Directors decided that it was time for the growing congregation to find a permanent home.
The search ended with the acquisition of a 3.5-acre lot located at 21310 N.W. 37th Avenue. On January 2, 1994, 800 supporters participated in the UTC ground-breaking ceremony. Rev. Tumpkin, the Board of Directors, ministerial staff, and congregants raised their shovels, hammers, screwdrivers, and paintbrushes to help erect the $1.5 million facility UTC now occupies and transform it into a proper church home. Today, 20 years later, every wall, doorway, window, paver, and parking stone serves as a reminder of the power of faith, love, and cooperation.
Under Reverend Tumpkin, who also served as the UFBL President from 1995 to 2013, UTC has produced teachers and ministers that have followed Jesus' admonition to go into the world to preach the Gospel. Members of UTC have left Miami to start churches in New York, the Bahamas, and Jamaica. Others have traveled to start UFBL study groups in Kissimmee and Jacksonville, Florida.
An acclaimed teacher, Bible scholar, and author, Dr. Tumpkin held a Doctorate of Ministry degree from the Florida Center for Theological Studies. She lectured throughout the United States, as well as in England, Canada, South America, and the Caribbean. She was known for her powerful, energetic, and often humorous preaching style and her ability to express the message of Jesus the Christ in a relevant, practical, and accessible way.

Rev. Dr. Tumpkin founded and served as the Senior Minister at the Universal Truth Center (UTC) in Miami Gardens. Thanks to our partnership with Rev. Dr. Tumpkin and the UTC, Miami Gardens families have been reached through parenting classes, universal campaigns and fun community events promoting safe, healthy and drug free children for a number of years. A visionary, Rev. Dr. Tumpkin was the first to see the need for the City of Miami Gardens to be a part of the largest drug prevention campaign in the nation and was instrumental in creating the first Miami Gardens Red Ribbon Week Parade. The annual event brings awareness to the prevention of underage drinking and illegal drug use.

Rev. Dr. Tumpkin's service to the Miami Gardens community, South Florida and beyond will be remembered forever.
