What is United Methodist Action Reach-out Mission by Youth?
United Methodist Action Reach-out Mission by Youth (U.M.ARMY) is an opportunity for youth and adults to experience Christian growth through service to others. Participants combine their strengths to meet home repair and maintenance needs for those unable to pay for the work, or who cannot do the work for themselves. One of our founding principles is that real and life changing mission work can take place close to home. We are committed to putting our resources to work in local communities.
