The Communications Team also is responsible for the United Media Resource Center (UMRC), a lending library with resources to support the various ministries of the IGRC. The Resource Center contains a variety of resources for pastors, Sunday School teachers, committee members, small groups, youth groups and children's ministries as well as resources for personal spiritual growth. There is no rental fee to borrow resources; the only cost to churches is mailing items back to the center. Visit and browse the UMRC collection at
