TETMI was established and launched on September 5th, 1985 at Imo hotels in Owerri. This was after the founder, Late Rev. Dr. S.M.I. Umune in company of Rev. Jerry Swank, a missionary with the then Sudan Interior Mission undertook a survey trip of all the then Eastern States of Nigeria, for the purpose of locating unreached areas and to find out how far the gospel had taken root in these areas.
According to late Rev. Dr. Umune, at the end of the trip, Rev. Swank turned to him and asked him, “Sunday, who will take the gospel to these your people?”

”… Go ye into all the world to preach the gospel” This command from our Lord and Saviour will not be fulfilled if there are no missionaries. Sponsor a Missionary Today and let the gospel prosper through you.
Some trust in chariots and some trust in horses, but I remember that Father God, You are my God, You are my Source, You are my strength and I thank You, in the name of Jesus.
