The United Methodist Church

Connecting the Church in Mission

North America

North America encompasses great political, economic, and religious diversity with Canada, Mexico, and the United States as its major countries. With the exception of a few projects that cross the U.S.-Mexican border, Mexico is considered regionally part of Latin America. While the United States has the most advanced economic and technical capacity in the world, issues such as poverty, limited opportunities, and racial-ethnic discrimination persist. These projects and United Methodist missionaries seek to break the cycle of poverty and to open opportunities for all.
