A new "4 Goals of Mission" brochure is now available in English, French, and Portuguese. The free resource unfolds in the shape of a cross to emphasize the fourfold responsibilities of the General Board of Global Ministries:

  1. Make disciples of Jesus Christ.

  2. Strengthen, develop, and renew Christian congregations and communities.

  3. Alleviate human suffering.

  4. Seek justice, freedom, and peace.

The brochure gives specific examples of how Global Ministries carries out the goals in representative countries among the 136 where it has personnel, projects, and mission partners. The diversity of these locations ranges from Chile to Kazakhstan, from Sudan to the United States.  The brochure also features dramatic photos of mission:

  • a UM Missionary with a mother and child at the Thiu Rancho project in Cochabamba

  • tsunami survivors at a temporary shelter in Aceh, Indonesia

  • a Hurricane Katrina survivor with UMCOR personnel in New Orleans

Each arm of the cross is devoted to a goal but all are united in a Christ-centered mission vision.
