How We Serve
The primary purpose of the department of Ministries Development is to partner with our local conferences in developing and supporting outreach ministries that will transform and evangelize the communities within our union territory.
We are dedicated to focusing our energies and resources toward finding new ways to share the Good News. As a result, we will highlight those projects and ministries that are evangelistically innovative, cross cultural, and which provide transferable ministry models for our other union churches.
