Although monetary support & prayer support is welcome we also need support with programs.
The following programs of UTM need your help.  We are in need of volunteers for the ROCK, Thursday Night Hype, and the Man-Up programs.   Each volunteer position requires a one-year commitment.  UTM requires two hours of orientation training and ten hours of optional urban, cross-cultural in service training to help you become an effective ministry volunteer in the inner-city.  We hope that these volunteer positions lead to mentoring relationships among UTM participants, both students and adults.
