The United Methodist Church expands its ministry around the world!
It was recently reported that the United Methodist Church, after cutting some of its missionary efforts in recent years, is re-igniting its missionary recruitment drive. We’re excited about that!
As reported, while the UMC continues to decline in the US, it has grown an amazing 177% in the last decade outside the US! The denomination is becoming much more global. That’s a reality that church leaders (i.e. the Council of Bishops, who met recently) have been wrestling with recently, specifically their leadership “role in the growing global denomination.”
May God help the UMC make a difference for God in the world by meeting people’s needs and helping people follow Jesus!
