60th Anniversary!

  A special giving opportunity from Rev. Roger Skelley-Watts Greetings, sisters and brothers of Christ in the Steubenville area:  I was privileged and honored to be appointed as Executive Director of The Urban Mission Ministries from 1988-1992.  God showered countless blessings upon us during that short, but eventful, time together.  The Mission moved from a small house on 3rd Street, two churches merged under the leadership of D.S. Jim Skinner, and the current Mission Center church at 301 North Fifth Street was donated to the Mission. I followed the untimely death of the Rev.

Community Survey

Community Survey

Did you know that fewer than half of American adults know most or all of their neighbors?  A recent survey from the Pew Internet & American Life Project found that when respondents were asked if they knew the names of the neighbors who live close to them, 19% of adults said they knew all of their neighbors. Another 24% said they knew most of their neighbors. This left the majority of American adults knowing only some (29%) or none (28%) of their neighbors by name. We want to change that in Steubenville.  In fact, we want to get to know our neighbors even better so we can better serve their needs… AND… learn more about who they are. If you’d like...
