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 approximately 5,000 participants working on about 2,000 projects and now have several mission models that serve throughout the year.

Most of these mission opportunities are hosted through our growing U.M. ARMY regional areas including the Northeast – North and Mid Atlantic Regions, 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, and surrounding Southeast states.

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 regions have expanded offerings to include Middle School Students, Middle School and High School combined (Mixed Age), and College Age/Young Adult and Family mission opportunities.

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