In today's world we are threatened by the rise of disinformation. Trustworthy news reporting is a public necessity that allows us to build our foundation of understanding on solid information.

UM News, the official news gathering agency for The United Methodist Church, is a ministry of United Methodist Communications. It counters disinformation by covering the news of the global church with objectivity while striving to be thorough, balanced and inclusive of the voices, views and contexts of the denomination. Instead of just presenting one side of an issue, UM News provides a full and unbiased account that audiences can rely on.

These efforts require financial support. If you believe in our mission, consider a tax-deductible donation to the collective work of United Methodist Communications through the UMCom Foundation.
