Minute for Mission: 2011
Based on United Methodist Women members giving and the approved budget for 2011,* the following calculations have been made to interpret the cost of mission for a specific time period. Use this information as you explain the value of United Methodist Women’s mission work with women, children and youth in the United States and in countries around the world.
In reality, the true cost of mission is higher, when we consider inflation; however, these figures reflect the cost based on mission pledges and member’s financial support.
*Note: These figures do not include the designated gifts received, including Call to Prayer and Self-Denial offerings.
