Sharing Our Mission Stories

Each of us has a mission story. Every congregation, church-related school and individual Christian has a story, a history, of how our faith began, was nurtured and grew. We write our denomination’s collective mission history as we share those accounts.

Our Global Ministries missions agency is observing the 200th anniversary of the founding of its initial predecessor: the Missionary Society of the Methodist Church, on April 5, 1819.
