Mission Opportunities for Young People


 

United Methodist Young Adult MIssionaries from Global Ministries on Vimeo.

The young adult missionaries of the United Methodist Church define “mission” in many personal ways, with words such as “partnership” and “life” and “faith.” They share their own reasons for coming to the young mission program, including serving others through faith and justice, preparation for the ministry, and international experience.

Whether participating in a program to raise awareness of social issues, networking with others around the world, volunteering in a clinic, or dedicating their lives to long-term missionary service, young people transform their communities.
