Welcome to U.M. ARMY - Texas Conference

U. M. ARMY – Texas Conference is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with offices in La Porte, Texas. U. M. ARMY (United Methodist Action Reach-Out Mission by Youth) began in 1979 with a single work camp in Athens, Texas, where youth groups from several Houston churches gathered to provide home repair assistance to people in need.

Today this organization has grown to more than 40 work camps throughout East and Southeast Texas with over 3,500 youth and adult volunteers annually. Our mission is two-fold; serving people in need, and providing young people an opportunity to mature in their faith-walk and life skills through Christian service.

Our mission is accomplished every summer when thousands of youth and adult volunteers sacrifice a week of their vacation to join God’s ARMY. Using a local Methodist church as a base camp where they sleep on the floor and eat ARMY food, participants spend the week providing free home repairs for low-income, elderly, and disabled homeowners in the surrounding area.
