Connecting the Church in Mission

Missionaries Visiting Churches

During their service, missionaries serving in international settings will itinerate or visit local churches.

As missionaries itinerate, they talk about the places where they live, the people with whom they live and serve, and what they are called to do. In short, they share what God is doing around the world. Here is what you can do to have a missionary visit you:

  1. Visit the missionary’s profile page (below) for a list of supporting conferences, country of service and contact information.
  2. Contact the missionary and your Conference Secretary of Global Ministries to schedule a visit to your church or congregation during the missionary's itineration.
  3. If you need assistance or have any questions, please contact our office;
