YOU make an impact

We give to minister in Jesus’ name. Together, United Methodists do remarkable ministry around the world.

We give because God first gave to us. Through our Shared Ministries all of us giving together allows United Methodists to do together what we cannot do alone. Behind each ministry is a story of hope and restoration and the unmeasurable impact of your generosity. Read stories about how you make an impact.
