UM Agencies

Agencies provide resources and services that equip local congregations and provide a connection for ministry throughout the world. These organizations can be found at all levels of the connection (churchwide, regional and local).

As United Methodists, we are called upon to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. To do that, we must interact with our neighbors, support one another in ministry and be intentional about our actions and work with the realization that together we make a difference in the world.  One way we accomplish this is through our apportioned funds, a method of giving that proportionally allocates the churchwide budget to conferences and local churches.

YOU make a difference

As United Methodists, we are called upon to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. To do that, we must interact with our neighbors, support one another in ministry and be intentional about our actions and work with the realization that together we make a difference in the world.

One way we accomplish this is through our apportioned funds, a method of giving that proportionally allocates the churchwide budget to conferences and local churches. This method of giving has become a strong, generous tradition that collectively funds seven ministries: The Africa University Fund, The Black College Fund, The Episcopal Fund, The General Administration Fund, The Interdenominational Cooperation Fund, The Ministerial Education Fund and the World Service Fund. Giving for apportionment funds is received through your local church.

Together our connection through each individual, each family, each congregation enable us to give a fair share for the church’s work. We combine our prayers, presence, gifts and service to make a significant difference in the lives of God’s people.
