Your gifts to Global Ministries and UMCOR through the Advance make a significant impact in the lives of individuals and communities around the world. In fact, 100% of your gift goes to the missionary, ministry or project you designate. There are more than 800 projects of the Advance that represent the four mission priorities of missionaries, evangelism and church revitalization, global health and humanitarian relief and recovery. We also have priority “where most needed” funds that allow us to respond to needs around the world, be it for immediate disaster response or for long-term recovery. Your gift to these priority funds allows us to participate in missio Dei—God’s mission—whenever and wherever the need arises.
