We have a responsibility.

At AHUMC, our purpose is to welcome all people, build community, share God's love, and serve the world.
Jesus said, “love God with all of your heart, soul, and strength,” and “love your neighbor as yourself.”
We are convinced that these two instructions are inseperable.  Loving our neighbors is hardwired into loving God--it's baked right in! 

The people of AHUMC share God's love and serve the world in more ways than we can possibly track.  Some of our efforts and partner agencies are highlighted below.  
If you have any questions or need further information, please contact Rev. Robert Ortiz.

Border Ministries

We have been serving and supporting our brothers and sisters in Piedras Negras, Mexico since 2006. Our missionaries primarily partner with three organizations that we have enjoyed long an fruitful relationships with. House of Mercy Orphanage is home to roughly 30 children and Casa Bethesda Orphanage is a home for 27 residents with mental and physical disabilities. We also partner with Aleluya Church supporting a children's feeding program and selling beautiful wooden crosses. These organizations are bringing the hope of the gospel and providing a loving home to the poor, the abused, and the abandoned in Piedras Negras, Mexico.


We have both day trips and weekend trips. If you would like to attend a trip, keep an eye here to find new about upcoming trips! If you have questions, please contact Wendy Meaden, 210-365-5315, or use this contact form.

MORE Water for Kenya

From 2009 to 2014, MORE grew as a movement within the local church and formed strategic partnerships with both merchandisers and missionaries like Bob Nicol-our drilling team leader. In 2014, MORE was launched out of the local church with the hope of building awareness and raising money beyond a local movement. MORE now strives to send not only money but also volunteers with MORE Water 4 Kenya to assist in the drilling of water wells in Kenya.


Your support of the MORE movement is crucial in solving the clean-drinking water problem now. Through donations, alternative consumerism, wearing MORE gear, and volunteering for MORE events or MORE trips to Kenya, you can save lives. Globally, 775 million people lack access to safe, clean drinking water. Over 2 million people die each year from water-related diseases, such as diarrhea. In fact, the dehydration that stems from diarrhea can claim as many as 2,000 children in Africa each day.


Likewise, your support is not abstract and is never too small to have an impact. Whether you shop in the MORE STORE, make a donation, or volunteer with MORE, you can rest assured that your support is being directed to providing safe, clean water to someone who needs it. For more information, contact Bob Nicol.


Interfaith Welcome Coalition

AHUMC has partnered with the Interfaith Welcome Coalition to addresses the needs of refugees, asylum seekers, and at-risk immigrants. One service they offer is the Migrant Overnight Shelter which welcomes and provides a quiet space where they can rest before embarking on the final phase of their long journey to family or sponsor. When there are more families than the shelter can accommodate, volunteer families in the overnight hospitality program welcome guests into their home where they are given a warm meal, comforting support, and restful accommodation for the night.


Kairos Prison Ministry

Kairos is an international group with local participation through AHUMC. The purpose of Kairos is to follow Jesus’ words, to visit the people and encourage the church in prison. Most often, we work at the Torres Unit in Hondo, TX. We have opportunities for men and women. For more information, contact Lance Freeman


Fishing Under the Bridge

Our ministry meets to work in the kitchen of Haven for Hope, a large facility for the homeless in downtown San Antonio. Our teams help to provide nourishing meals and smiling faces to our neighbors in residence at Haven. We hope you’ll join us! As more people volunteer, we’d love to send more teams each month. We are currently visiting on the fourth Sunday of every month. For more information, contact Kathie Love.
