In Mission Together (IMT)
Partner with one of Global Ministries' Mission Initiatives through the In Mission Together program.
Global Ministries is working in collaboration with church leaders across the world to plant new churches. These Mission Initiatives are unique in many ways, but mostly because they are places where The United Methodist Church is new to the population.
Conferences, districts, and local churches can support and learn from these vibrant congregations through a partnership covenant. In Mission Together facilitates church planting by developing partnerships between the U.S. and churches abroad. A partnership covenant is created between the two, which fosters mutuality and respect for each other. Then both will be transformed and energized by this faith-building experience.
Get started now and join with the other 800+ United Methodist Churches who are already connected with congregations around the world!
