United Methodist Volunteers-in-Mission (UMVIM) Insurance

One of the “best practices” for all UMVIM team leaders and members, individual volunteers, Primetimers and disaster volunteers is to secure UMVIM accident insurance.  Mission Volunteers/Global Ministries strongly urges that no UMVIM group of individual, regardless of the type of volunteer work they do, engage in any domestic or international mission volunteer work without securing insurance coverage.  Several “hosting partners,” international and local, are being directed to require that each UMVIM team or individual obtain insurance prior to beginning a mission experience.  Both receiving and sending partners are being responsible by ensuring that adequate insurance is available in case of accidents or other medical issues.

The following Jurisdictional offices offer insurance policies:

Each of the above jurisdictional offices is ready to serve your UMVIM groups or individuals with the appropriate insurance irrespective of the region in which you are located. They are also ready to support your training and preparation as you engage in God’s mission around the world.  Please email: with questions or for more information.
