The United Methodist Church proudly partners with organizations across the globe to follow its mission statement “for the transformation of the world”. The best part, is that you can help! Here are just a few of the many opportunities you have to serve the people around you in a unique and meaningful way.
Generation Transformation is a young adult mission program brought to you by the General Board of Global Ministries. Within this program, young adults have the chance to serve for anywhere between two months and two years! Generation Transformation accepts applicants to become Global Mission Fellows, Global Justice Volunteers, and Individual Volunteers, who are placed all over the world in ministry settings. In the time they are there, they will serve the organization and community around them in the name of Christ. Visit the website for more detailed information, or to apply to be a volunteer.
The Sierra Service Project has been around since 1975 to provide service opportunities to youth and young adults. Those who choose to participate in the program spend their days doing service work, like repairing homes, and then their evening times in worship or recreational activities. The purpose of the Sierra Service Project is to build faith, strengthen community, and serve others. There are several different programs in a variety of locations that you can get involved in; from separate middle and high school programs, to combined ones, to young adult, there is certainly one that is right for you.
