In its third week, 10-fold.org concentrates on Mission Initiatives of the General Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church. Mission Initiatives primarily involves the starting of new churches in places where the United Methodist Church is new to the population. Nearly 400 new churches are being planted in new places through Global Ministries’ mission initiatives in Cambodia, Cameroon, Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan), Honduras, Latvia, Lithuania, Malawi, Mongolia, Russia, Senegal, and Southeast Asia (Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam).
Local churches can be a part of this movement by supporting and learning from these vibrant congregations through a church-to-church partnership with the In Mission Together program.
The In Mission Together program facilitates church planting abroad by developing partnerships with local congregations in the US. A partnership covenant is created between the two churches, which fosters mutuality and respect for each other. This is important because both will be transformed and energized by this faith-building experience.
- The average age for a pastor in a Mission Initiative is just 35 years old.
- Church planting efforts have been initiated in over 25 countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, and Latin America.
- All 50 US states are represented in the In Mission Together church-to-church partnership program, which connects US churches with new church plants in Mission Initiatives around the world.
