Mission Stories

Methodists have always been a mission-minded people. Mission involves Christians set by God to and from anywhere who cross boundaries to spread the gospel in word, sign, and deed. Following this understanding, Methodists from all continents, from many nationalities, races, and ethnicities, both women and men, lay and ordained, have organized, supported, and engaged in mission to evangelize; start new churches; work for justice; alleviate suffering; build peace; empower women; train leaders in society; conduct medical missions; start new churches, schools, hospitals, clinics, and printing presses; and witness to the kingdom of God.
