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.
