Do you feel called to serve?
Do you want to reach out to others to heal where healing is needed, to comfort where comfort is needed?
United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) is the short-term mission arm of the United Methodist Church. Our volunteers are lay and clergy, young and old, with diverse abilities and interests, but with common desire to put our faith in action.
We come together through the United Methodist Church in order that all may offer their skills and talents for Christian service at home and abroad. Our emphasis is upon matching persons with opportunities so that everyone may participate in mission. God calls all Christians “to bring good news to the oppressed [and] to bind up the broken-hearted” (Isaiah 61:1). We believe that no matter who you are, no matter the level of your resources, no matter how big or small your church, God is calling you to mission.
UMVIM exists to connect you with mission projects, both in your backyard and across the globe. Within the United Methodist Church, UMVIM works closely with Annual Church Conferences and the General Board of Global Ministries, to serve as a source of information for potential volunteers for local, regional, national and international needs.
