Mission Giving

As United Methodists, we commit to supporting the church with our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. This does not mean that everyone is called to become a missionary vocationally, but it does mean that we should strive to support the missionary work being done around the globe by United Methodists. Two ways that you can do this are through The Advance and through the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).

The Advance

The Advance is an official program of The United Methodist Church for voluntary, designated, second-mile giving. Through The Advance, United Methodist annual conferences, districts, local churches, and organizations, as well as individuals and families, may choose to support mission programs or mission personnel with their financial gifts. Each Advance project has been vetted and approved by Global Ministries and Advance staff.
