Media Relations

The Public Information Office works to increase awareness and understanding of the mission and ministries of The United Methodist Church through the dissemination and placement of news and information through the secular and religious media, including newspapers, radio, television and magazines.

We also maintain the United Methodist Press Center, an online resource for news media and provide consultative services such as media strategy planning, public relations and crisis communications assistance to church agencies and annual conferences.

If you are a reporter in need of resources, data, an interview or an expert source, we're here to help. Contact us at presscenter@umcom.org or call 615-742-5406.
