Years ago, laity began a movement of mutual mission around the globe called United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM). Today, we continue the work of missional partnership with locations where we are invited to serve and with people we call sisters and brothers. UMVIM trainings prepare Mission Team Leaders and Spiritual Guides to lead teams of people called to serve in mission. Whether you're planning a construction team to one of our West Ohio Camps, traveling to one of our Mission Partnerships, or doing mission just down the street from your church, Volunteers in Mission training is for YOU! Please celebrate and pray with us as we commission the work of 8 newly trained UMVIM Team Leaders and Spiritual Guides. In a season such as this, we are grateful for all UMVIM teams' dedication to building and re-building the kingdom of God locally and globally. For more information on upcoming UMVIM trainings and teams, check out the West Ohio VIM webpage or contact Rebecca Hug, Community Engagement Coordinator, at rhug [at] wocumc.org.
