Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action. - 1 John 3:18
United Methodist Volunteers In Mission (UMVIM) exists to promote, encourage and enable Christians to exemplify “Christian Love In Action”. Our aim is to achieve the Great Commission through providing short-term mission opportunities for everyday Christians.
UMVIM provides opportunities for service by developing and nurturing relationships with domestic and international leaders. We continually nurture our contacts with these leaders to respond to the needs of local communities and to provide comprehensive project information. Our office strives to connect volunteers’ talents to suitable projects for effective service.
UMVIM also promotes and encourages mission through printed literature and this web site. These tools present mission to our current community and potential volunteers, as well as to other United Methodists and Christians. We provide training programs for individuals and team leaders to help them prepare themselves and their team(s) for the mission field.
