United Methodist Volunteers in Mission is an outreach program of the Board of Global Ministries and UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief). UMVIM volunteers serve within our Mountain Sky Conference, across the United States and internationally. UMVIM is a grassroots movement within The United Methodist Church designed to provide an official channel for volunteer service, and an opportunity to express “Christian Love in Action.” You can connect with UMVIM resources and potential projects through www.umvimwj.com for Western Jurisdiction connections, or www.umvim.org for additional General Church info.
Teams can be all shapes and sizes: young people, adults, retirees, folks with medical or construction backgrounds, or just good-hearted, faithful volunteers. There is a project for every group wanting to serve. If you need help connecting your group to a project, insurance, or other resources, contact Pastor Jean Schwien, MSC UMVIM Coordinator. email@example.com

|NOMADS Mission Volunteers|
Nomads On a Mission Active in Divine Service – NOMADS provide volunteer labor for Methodist organizations. NOMADS demonstrate God’s love through our work and by listening to the people with whom we work. We do new construction, remodeling, and repairs for churches, children’s homes, camps, colleges, outreach missions and disaster rebuilding. Team members do maintenance, cleaning, painting, electrical, drywall, sewing, flooring. With God’s help, NOMADS pretty much do it all. NOMADS assist United Methodist churches, children’s homes, colleges, camps, and work with outreach ministries and disaster recovery projects across the United States.
Some people remember the NOMADS acronym as Nice Older Methodists Avoiding Deep Snow. Since we travel in RVs, we do follow the sun. Starting in January we offer projects across the southern states. As the year progresses and the weather gets warmer, projects gradually are offered farther north. For more information: www.methodistnomads.org
If your church or organization has on-going projects that could benefit from the efforts of UMVIM teams, please contact our MSC UMVIM Coordinator for information on how to become a host site. UMVIM can provide your on-going ministry with enhanced publicity through UMVIM channels, guidance on setting up a site to welcome short-term volunteer teams, insurance for members of UMVIM teams. Your site can become available to MSC teams, and teams from other parts of the U.S. It’s a big win-win for your site and potential volunteers! firstname.lastname@example.org
