Rev. Cleveland P. Howell began his time with Urban Christian Ministries in 1982 as a volunteer and has been a vital part ever since. He worked with and developed youth programs, creating the "Kids of Galilee" youth group as well as expanding and enhancing community outreach.
Rev. Howell continued serving UCM in several areas, including positions as Youth Director, Summer Camp Director and even as an emergency medical technician. He realized that God was calling him to full-time service, and in 1995, he became UCM's Assistant Director, ultimately becoming Executive Director in 2005.
In his evolving role, after serving five years as the operational leader, he was appointed to the Board of Directors in 2010. Rev. Howell was named Chairman of the Board of Directors in 2017, and is currently serving as Interim Executive Director.
