Proclamation and Witness to the Saving Grace of Jesus Christ
The Evangelization and Church Growth program area facilitates the proclamation and witness to the saving grace of Jesus Christ through word, deed, and sacrament in every sphere of human existence.
Our program area works with its various mission partners - including annual and central conferences, autonomous and autonomous-affiliated Methodist churches, other church agencies, and other units of the board-to train leaders, establish relationships and make available resources for church growth and renewal throughout the world.
