UIM began in the year 1998, when a group of friends were stirred by the Lord to set right their homes. What began with their families soon extended to the families of their friends. And overtime, spread to families in their community, in the corporate and impoverished families in the slums. As they continued in obedience to the Lord, doors opened for them to minister in more than 40 cities, reaching churches of different denominations and affiliations. UIM today, reaches specifically three different groups of people – the urban middle class, the urban teens and the urban poor. Through six different ways, UIM fulfils its objectives of serving the urban community: Family counselling, Family life education, Life skills and Value education Programs, Compassion ministry in the urban slums, Media ministry through television, magazines and Training programs on family education and counselling.
