ARMEE Ministries originated in December 2008 with a group of young adults in Turlock, California, who had a strong desire to for corporate prayer through Praise & Worship. Before it was an actual ministry, it started as a Men’s Prayer Group, which extended to the women in the community. They would gather together for prayer almost on a nightly basis, and the desire for communal prayer was spreading through the Turlock/Modesto area. These young adults started doing youth ministry together, and while leading a Lifeteen retreat, there was an evening of Adoration with Praise & Worship and the teens on retreat were changed by that encounter of Christ in his true presence. Soon this prayer group was an open invitation for anyone to come and pray, whether young adult, teen, married, single, and everything in between. The young adults who pioneered this ministry new there this was becoming an army for Christ, and through prayer and conversation came the acronym Adoration, Reconciliation, Mass, Eucharist, & Evangelization, thus ARMEE Ministries was officially born. They've been officially meeting every Monday night since April 2009, and ARMEE has become a powerful ministry that is spreading across the Stockton Diocese in Central California. Every Monday, they gather for fellowship, spiritual nourishment, and worship, with a different guest speaker each week, followed by Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and the Sacrament of Confession being offered as well. ARMEE Ministries is continuing to spread like fire, with the desire to keep our Church filled with passion and zeal for prayer, community, and worship.
