The United Board of Missions is a faith based non-profit organization making positive impacts in the communities of mid and south Jefferson county, Texas. The UBM began as an outreach into the surrounding community of Port Arthur, Texas in 1967 by a group of laypersons from St. Mark’s United Methodist Church in Griffing Park, Texas.
The UBM has grown dramatically since that time concentrating on basic human needs such as clothing, shelter, and food. We are a local church organization and supported non-profit, which means all our funds stay local. The UBM depends on combined efforts of volunteers, limited staff, Board of Directors and various committees to carry out our mission.
