End of Year Campaign Introductory Letter

Help us bring healing and hope to the world by sharing love, joy, hope and peace. YOU make the difference!



Unfortunately, many of us have experienced unexpected challenges that take us in surprising directions. Now, more than ever, people are searching for hope and healing. Now, more than ever, the ministries of The United Methodist Church are needed in the areas of evangelism and church growth, missionary ministries, global health, disaster response and recovery increases.

Global Ministries wants to share stories of transformational mission work and how your support of The Advance, Global Ministries, and UMCOR are bringing hope and healing to the world. Today, you can be the answer to those in search of love, joy, hope and peace.

Between November 1 and December 31, Global Ministries, the worldwide mission and development agency of The United Methodist Church, invites members to support their denomination-wide year-end giving campaign through prayer, sharing information and financial support. Through this end of year campaign, members and congregations are able to help make a difference for those who are vulnerable.

There are several ways to participate: through prayer, social media posts and monetary gifts. Your church will share stories of the transformational work happening through our church, The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), Global Ministries—which is the missional and disaster relief arm of The United Methodist Church—and how gifts through The Advance impact lives.

Since 1948, support of The Advance—the designated mission giving channel of the church— has raised funds that positively effect change within communities and empower individuals across the globe. Thanks to faithful giving, The Advance has funneled more than $1 billion to equip ministries worldwide.

Global Ministries connects the church in mission through evangelism and church revitalization, missionaries, global health and disaster response and recovery. Every contribution makes a difference in this important work. Beginning November 1, mission-funding gifts to The Advance through the year-end campaign can be made at umcmission.org/GiveLove.
