UCiM, at its Annual Meeting on February 26/12, made some exciting decision to meet the commitments we have made to grow our ministry. One of the realities of those choices is the financial component. As we work through 6 weeks of stories that highlight – through quick snapshots – aspects of our ministry, we pray you will consider helping us meet the goals we have collectively set over the last several years. Welcome to the 2012 Ask: 37k @ Campaign!
