Each year U.M. ARMY-Rio TX is blessed by the selfless time and gifts that our youth advisory board members (aka YABbers) provide.

YABbers attend two mission opportunities  each summer – one with their home church and another as a peer leader. Each day they train in a different leadership position, learning the skills and gaining the experience necessary to lead every aspect of the mission week.

Our goal is that these students will one day be directors!

Potential YABbers must meet the requirement of attending at least one year of High School U.M. ARMY and then go through an application process which includes recommendations from their youth pastor.
