Communication is vital to the church, just as it has been since the first century when the Apostle Paul wrote the letters we continue to read thousands of years later.

As the communications agency for The United Methodist Church, United Methodist Communications seeks to increase awareness and visibility of the denomination in communities and nations throughout the world. United Methodist Communications also serves the denomination at all levels, including local churches, by offering services, tools, products and resources for communications ministry.
