A Word From Bishop Ward
Dear friends in Christ,
 
Mission opportunities are before us for young adults, ages 18-30!
 
Please take a moment to read about these opportunities and to encourage young adults in your church and family to consider applying.
 
Methodist people have always known face to face engagement with the poor and suffering to be a means of grace.   We meet Christ and receive grace as we extend ourselves in mission.  Let us make the most of this opportunity for serving, growing, and learning. 
 
The time is short, so please do spread this word today!
 
With gratitude for our participation in Christ’s mission,
 
Bishop Hope Morgan Ward

For over six decades, The United Methodist Church through the General Board of Global Ministries has offered opportunities for young adults to engage in faith and justice centered mission service and discernment within the United States and around the world. There are three exciting ways for young adults to engage this summer. All three programs are based on the philosophy of mutuality in mission – mission with, not mission to or for others. Participants come from everywhere and go everywhere, where they are trained with fellow young adults, engage in cross-cultural exposure, learning, and hands-on service while exploring the links between faith and justice. They learn and live out the transformative gospel of Jesus Christ, engage in Christian reflection during and post service, and examine how to continue God’s mission in their own lives, communities and vocational context.

Long Term Mission Opportunities
