The vitality of the United Methodist Volunteers In Mission movement is alive and well in The United Methodist Church! Participants testify to lives transformed and congregations renewed as they become involved in "service with others" mission outreach. New relationships are developed with persons from other cultures, and traditional walls of division are torn away as they participate in hands-on involvement.
The United Methodist Volunteers In Mission movement is one of the most exciting things happening in the church today. In 2008, well over 100,000 persons were documented as having served on UMVIM teams.
Be a part of this exciting hands-on ministry!
