Connecting the Church in Mission


Global Ministries partners through active and continuing communications with the leaders of the United Methodist Church in Germany. Through The Advance, the Church is engaged in language and migrant missions, reaching out to the increasingly diverse immigrant populations settling in this northern European country. There are four Global Ministries missionaries serving in Germany, and a National-in-Mission minister works with French-speaking migrants from Africa.
