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 have four established U.M. ARMY chapters across Texas and the Northeast United States, and this year we’ll be hosting growth U.M. ARMY weeks in Florida, Mississippi and Virginia. We are also excited to announce that the state of Louisiana has joined into an established chapter to expand our reach.

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 Chapter Executive Directors.
