Thanks for visiting our website! For 40 Years, U.M. ARMY has called Texas – “HOME”.  We were born here and grew here for many years before spreading our roots more broadly throughout the US.

As you are aware, Hurricane Harvey hit our home and the communities that we live hard. As an organization, we ask individuals to:

PRAY as we are #InRelationship with a God who loves and understands our needs.
MAKE/COLLECT Flood Relief Buckets.
GIVE financially to U.M. ARMY and UMCOR.
SHARE/LIKE on social media to connect friends and communities in need.
PREPARE TO GO. We are called to a lifetime of service. However sometimes we must listen to God and understand the right time to GO. Adding missionaries at an inappropriate time can create chaos. Therefore, when the time is right for us, we will be ready. We will work with our ministry partners to facilitate ministry as we are able. We will look for the appropriate time for weekends & week long missions in the coming weeks, and months ahead.

NOW IS THE TIME! We have heard from many churches that are ready to receive short term weekend groups as well as week-long Christmas, Spring Break and Summer missions. You can sign up now at the below link.

Currently Weekend trips include:

Oct 6-9, 2017 in League City, TX

Oct 27-29, 2017 in Edna, TX

Nov 24-16, 2017 in LaGrange, TX

we will open additional locations and weekends as needed.

U.M. ARMY is an acronym which stands for United Methodist Action Reach-Out Mission by Youth. U.M. ARMY’s mission is: “To provide Christ-centered missions that serve people in need and  promote spiritual growth and leadership development in youth and young adults.”

U.M. ARMY mission programs are an opportunity for youth, young adults and adult leaders to experience Christian growth through mission, worship and fellowship. Individual participants and church groups combine their strengths with those of other groups to meet home repair and maintenance needs of those unable to help themselves.

U.M. ARMY has been in mission since 1979.Our program is constantly growing in size and territory. We have managed to touch many lives over those years. Annually we have 5,000 participants working on about 2,000 projects and now have mission opportunities during Christmas and spring breaks as well as throughout the summer!

Most of these mission opportunities are hosted through our growing U.M. ARMY regional areas including the Northeastern Region of the US, North x Northwest Texas, Rio (Southwest) Texas, Texas Conference (East Texas and Louisiana). We are also focused on growing in new territories too. Currently these include: Florida, Mississippi, Virginia, and throughout the Southeast, South-central, and North-central Jurisdictions of the United Methodist Church.

Our mission programs were originally designed for Senior High aged students who had completed at least one year of High School. Today, many of our chapters have expanded offerings to include Middle School Students, Middle School and High School combined (Mixed Age), and College Age/Young Adult mission opportunities.

We invite you to take a look around this site and browse our chapter pages as well for more details about all that is happening throughout our growing U.M. ARMY family.
