We are glad you have chosen to check out Urban Ministry Advantage (UMA). We believe God has led you to this site because you are searching for answers to ministry issues, seeking to spark new growth or responding to the necessary systemic and structural changes of a growing ministry. Whatever you need, UMA resources will work for you---irrespective of the size, age, or stage of your ministry.
We are convinced that you will enjoy experimenting with the wide range of resources UMA offers. You can:
- Access the online library and create an account so you can store your work for future use.
- Secure the services of a virtual tutor and/or personal coach who will help you formulate the right questions and find the right answers for your particular ministry. (UMA does not employ “a cookie cutter approach” marketed as the answer to every church's issues.)
With your ministry’s purchase of a UMA license, you will be equipped to supervise and support your lay leaders as they formulate winning teams, grow in competence and confidence and work on projects crucial to capturing God's future for your ministry rather than simply perpetuating the past.
To be sure, UMA is not a spiritual silver bullet. We simply want to assist you in the process that God has put into play to transform you, your leadership team, your church, and your community. Take hold of the tools God has given you through UMA to avoid making costly mistakes and to advance the cause of Christ in your area. UMA can bless you and your ministry for years to come if you are willing to make the investment now.
