Global Ministries started working in Cuba in the late 1800s. In 1970 the Methodist Church in Cuba (IMECU) became autonomous. The IMECU currently has 32,000 members distributed in 350 congregations and 600 missions. Global Ministries is supporting the Evangelical Methodist Seminary in Havana and several institutional ministries. The UMVIM movement in Cuba is strong and structured. The priorities of Global Ministries include leadership, church development, and evangelization.
Florida Annual Conference has a formal covenant with the IMECU. Global Ministries also works in Cuba with the Evangelical Seminary of Theology, Matanzas.
