The General Board of Global Ministries is the global mission, relief, and development agency of The United Methodist Church. As a biblically rooted and historically informed organization, Global Ministries facilitates engagement in God’s mission. As part of Global Ministries, the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to alleviating human suffering around the globe.
Connecting the Church in mission.
The General Board of Global Ministries equips and transforms people and places for God’s mission around the world.
Achieving this vision requires a diverse global staff that meets international standards of professionalism in all areas of technical, relational, denominational and financial work. Global Ministries values the faith and trust of its constituents, including donors, and therefore strives to maintain rigor, integrity and transparency in its financial stewardship. It collaborates with other United Methodist general agencies and ecumenical organizations working in the same areas of the world and with local churches and annual conferences, providing the opportunity for meaningful and transforming participation in God’s mission.
Four Mission Goals
