Four Areas of Focus of The United Methodist Church

ENGAGING IN MINISTRY WITH THE POOR – Jesus calls us to be in ministry with the poor and the marginalized. United Methodists believe working side-by-side with those striving to improve their situation is more effective long-term than top-down charity.  Learn more.

IMPROVING GLOBAL HEALTH – Knowing that poverty and health are intertwined, The United Methodist Church has become a key player in fighting diseases and promoting initiatives that improve the well-being of individuals and communities.  Learn more.

DEVELOPING PRINCIPLED CHRISTIAN LEADERS – The church needs leaders rooted in Jesus Christ who have a vision for changing the world.  We must reach, and nurture, today’s young people to shape the church’s path into the future. Learn more.

CREATING NEW AND RENEWED CONGREGATIONS – United Methodists are reimagining what it means to be the church, planting new congregations, and revitalizing faith communities. By being relevant and vital, we will draw more people to Christ.  Learn more.
