The vision of the Urban Mission and Ministry Congress (UMMC) is people transformed, empowered, and equipped to provide outstanding leadership for the Gospel in urban contexts.
The mission is to provide an interdisciplinary congress providing inspiration, leadership development, training, consultation, and research for urban ministry leaders.
UMMC provides the opportunity for field practitioners and academicians to link in a process of reflection that shapes the church’s understanding of urban community and promotes Christ’s method of reaching people across cultures.
UMMC provides a network for people and organizations in their journey as servants in City Ministry contexts.
UMMC builds healthy congregations in today’s city centers.
UMMC is planned and implemented by the North American Division Ministerial, North American Division Community Services, North American Division Evangelism Institute, Andrews University, the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary, and the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
