Connecting the Church in Mission

Communications, The Advance & Fundraising

Communications, The Advance, and Fundraising provides resources for Global Ministries and the United Methodist connection, which support the new reality of both communications and mission in a new age.   

Communications develops and implements clear, consistent, and engaging strategies that enhance the church’s understanding of global mission.

The  Advance is the d
esignated giving arm of The United Methodist Church that ensures 100 percent of each gift is used for its intended mission or ministry.

Fundraising secures funding for priority mission emphases within Global Ministries and UMCOR by cultivating new and existing individual donors for both planned and major gift support.
