The purpose of every UMVIM team is to build relationships with all God’s children. Whether we serve in our own backyard or in another country , our purpose is to share the love of Christ in multiple ways. God has given us all unique skills and gifts as a means to embody Christian love in action. The task is what we are to do with our abilities such as construct a building, pull teeth, provide glasses, or bring to life a Vacation Bible School. Our task is a way to achieve our overall purpose.
Methods of Service
There are several ways to participate in team mission, either as a team member or team leader. The types of teams are:
- A group of persons from a local church, district, conference, or surrounding
community works on a building project in a mission setting (usually a
church, school, clinic, or home).
- Groups of dedicated individuals prepare and teach the love of Jesus
Christ through a variety of academic settings. These teams share their
faith and expertise by teaching English Second Language (ESL), Cottage
Industries, Vacation Bible School and other children’s ministries.
