Missionary Support Resources


In more than 60 countries around the world, United Methodist missionaries come from many places and backgrounds and witness and serve in dramatically different locales and cultures.

They engage in a range of activities and professions including pastors, educators, congregational and leadership developers, regional coordinators for UMCOR, agriculturalists, health coordinators, and doctors.

Ways you can help support United Methodist Missionaries:

  1. Learn about our missionaries and how they live faith through their remarkable work.
  2. Pray for them and their ministry.
  3. Share news of United Methodist missionaries at your church. Use these resources to help: Church and Missionary Partnerships and Missionary Newsletters/Blogs
  4. Give to missionaries around the world or to a specific missionary of your choice from his/her bio.
  5. Partner with a missionary through a Covenant Relationship
