From our Board President

Welcome to U.M. ARMY’s website!  We are glad you decided to learn more about our thriving ministry.

U.M. ARMY provides Christ-centered missions that serve people in need and promote spiritual growth and leadership development in youth and young adults.  It’s a mission we take seriously, and one we’ve been doing for over thirty-five years.

If you’re here because you have participated in a U.M. ARMY before, thank you.  You know the impact each U.M. ARMY makes on students, volunteers, homeowners, and communities.

As the Board of Directors, it is our  desire for this life-giving ministry to continue to grow.  All of us support U.M. ARMY with our own time, talents, and resources, and you can too!

We are one U.M. ARMY organization working across the United States.  This year U.M. ARMY  will have mission weeks in our Texas/Louisiana, North x Northwest Texas, Rio TX, Northeast- North and Northeast -Mid Atlantic Regions.  Additionally, we continue to have growth missions in Florida, Kentucky, and Mississippi.

We want to partner with you in this work.  We would love your prayers, your financial contribution, and any other kind of support you can provide.  For more information, contact our National Executive Director or any of the Regional Directors.
