Project Information

Supporting young adult missionaries, i.e. Global Mission Fellows, of the UMC around the world

Annual Goal: $50,000.00

Year to Date Gifts: $8,270.00

Describe the need affecting community

Today, there are over 1000 alumni of these programs around the world serving in a broad spectrum of ministries, still passionate about social justice, still integrating the lessons they learned through their term of service into their daily vocations. We celebrate over 65 years of young adults in mission service and look forward to sending hundreds more around the globe on behalf of the United Methodist Church.

How will this Advance project help to address the need?

The Generation Transformation: Global Mission Fellows (GMF) program combines strengths of the US-2 and Mission Intern programs that began in 1951 and 1977, respectively. The GMF program engages young adults passionate about social justice to serve either in one’s own country or internationally; literally ‘from everywhere, to everywhere’. The program’s core values of Engage with Local Communities; Connect the Church in Mission and Grow in Personal and Social Holiness inform both the mission work and personal life of these young missionaries.
