Servanthood

United Methodists continue to heed the lessons our founder, John Wesley, taught his followers: to live lovingly and justly as servants of Christ by healing the sick, feeding the hungry, caring for the stranger, freeing the oppressed; being a compassionate presence, and working to develop social structures that are consistent with the gospel.
 
We achieve this goal by serving throughout the world in different way. In 2008, church leadership designated four areas of ministry focus for all levels of the church.
  • Ministering with the Poor
  • Improving Global Health
  • Growing Vital Churches
  • Developing Christian Leaders
 
The church also has always been deeply committed to disaster relief and advocacy efforts. It is part of our Wesleyan DNA. All of these efforts to serve God also serve our neighbors and fulfill our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
