WHO WE ARE

 

Urban Community Ministries (UCM) began as the non-profit arm of CHRIST'S COMMUNITY CHURCH. 
We want to be agents of change in our community… a haven where the love of Christ is shown by meeting practical and spiritual needs ..., and an avenue to be the hands and feet of Christ for those looking to do more with the gifts and talents God has given them. 

It is not about us, but about how we can be used to build up our community. We are mandated to love and provide hope that can point to a good future. We do this by mentoring and being advocates for the families in South Memphis. We emphasize education, foster dreams, and reinforce that each person that enters our doors was created with a plan and a purpose. Our goal is to help facilitate individual's path toward finding out what that is. We currently have the following community opportunities:

  • After School Program - first grade and up

  • Summer Safe Haven Camp - ages 6 and up

  • Thursday Evening Hair Styles (in collaboration with TN College of Applied Technology)

  • Faith and Finance Classes (Adult)

  • Zumba Classes

  • Family mediation/counseling

  • Groups

    • Life Skills

    • Financial Literacy (with mentors from Cadence Bank)

    • Young Ladies of Destiny II  

    • Boys2Men

    • Friends of Bill

    • Parents Peer-2-Peer Partner Events

 

 

If you are looking for a place that is interested in building up families and equipping future leaders ...
one person or one family at a time,... come and see what we are all about. Your are needed here!

OUR EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP

 

Our pastor, Lemar Walker, began working in the ministry over 30 years ago. Often when sharing his testimony, he states that he was a "fool" for the devil, the least he can do now is to be a "fool" for the Lord. He knows that the only remedy for what ails a hurting heart and soul is Jesus.

 

After being odained in 1979, his call to carry out Jesus' command of the Great Commission has taken him to Africa, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, China, Dominican Republic, and India. He feels it is the mandate of every believer to use the gifts, talents, and resources for the building up of God's kingdom.
