Seldom am I asked why. Why do we do what we do? More specifically: "Why does Urban Light Ministries focus on fathers?" Yet, that is a more important question than "What does Urban Light do?" and "How does Urban Light do what we do?" Together, the answer to those questions constitutes the organization's MISSION STATEMENT which is: Turning the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to the Father. That's what we do. Urban Light ministries provide fatherhood programs to help dads become better parents, partners, and providers. We operate The Sonshine Clubs children's ministry to introduce kid's to The Lord Jesus Christ. That's how we do what we do.
The question remains: Why? This is Urban Light's CAUSE STATEMENT. More children need present, fully-engaged, loving fathers. Please watch this video about father absence and the devastation it causes children, families and society as a whole.
If you would like to make a difference, here are three suggestions:
- Pray with ULM as we strive to increase the number of children with present, fully-engaged, loving fathers.
- Volunteer as a mentor of a young dad.
- Support our cause by clicking on the DONATE button at the top of this page. We thank God for you.
