The World Service Fund is the primary avenue of support for the global mission and ministry of The United Methodist Church. World Service connects your church to a long list of Christian mission and ministry throughout the denomination in the work of the general church agencies and other national and international programs.


It is the heart of our denominational presence, expressing in the Four Areas of Focus the vision and yearnings of the people of The United Methodist Church. During this quadrennium, the church seeks to focus the work of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world around these areas of ministry:


  1. Developing Principled Christian Leaders for the Church and the World
  2. Creating New Places for New People and Renewing Existing Congregations
  3. Engaging in Ministry with the Poor
  4. Stamping out Killer Diseases of Poverty by improving Health Globally
