Each year, United Methodist Women members prepare for faithful living and action by studying mission studies. Mission studies are offered each year - a geographical, topical, and spiritual growth study. These studies motivate, inform, and enrich our commitment to global ministry.
Members take one of the three mission studies through the organization's Schools of Christian Mission program offered around the country.
2013 Mission Studies
