Urban Light Ministries

Urban Light Ministries is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was first established in 1985 as Lifeline Ministries. For more than a quarter century, ULM has been spiritually enriching the lives of children, and since 2006, has been working to increase the number of responsible fathers to strengthen families.


The primary programs offered by the organization include “Father Love,” a community-based fatherhood program and “The Sonshine Clubs,” an elementary student after-school ministry. The work of the organization is currently based in Springfield and serves the Greater Dayton, Ohio area.


Urban Light Ministries is a pioneer in addressing a growing systemic problem in America: the need for a father in a child’s life. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 24 million children in America – one out of three – live without their biological father in the home. Consequently, there is a “father factor” in nearly all of the societal ills facing America today.

Father Love


Father Love explores the concept of love as it is described in the word of God, and considers its application for dads. The book encourages and inspires a father to give his child what no one else on earth can… his best, fully-developed Father Love.

The newly released companion Study Guide is suitable for individual study and for small group discussions. Formatted in 13 one-hour sessions, it is perfect for men’s groups.

The “Father Love” program improves participants’ awareness of how to become a more effective “POPS” by over 22% as documented from a past class of over 26 participants.  The program’s effectiveness and testimonials can be reviewed in the latest published white paper.  Click here to download a copy of the whitepaper.
