Mission Initiative News

More than 800 United Methodist churches in the United States are connected to congregations across the world. In these mission relationships new churches are established and existing ones are strengthened. Lay and clergy leaders are trained and affirmed, the hungry are fed, the sick are tended, and those in prison are visited.

Mission Initiative consultation participants come together from around the world to worship, share, testify to the acts of God, encourage one another, and grow in faith.
