$30 buys a takeout meal — or $30 invested in the Global Mission Fellows program transforms a young adult’s life. Global Mission Fellows, ages 20-30, serve for two years in social justice ministries across the country or internationally. These young adults engage with local communities, connect the church in mission, and grow in personal and social holiness. They work alongside community organizations on hunger and poverty, global health, migration, and education issues. Fellows from the United States and other countries leave their home communities, go through an extensive orientation, and work either in the United States or internationally – however, because of the pandemic, the newly commissioned 2020 class of Fellows will work only in the U.S.

FUMC partners with the GMF program, a ministry of The United Methodist Church. Annually in September, you have the opportunity to transform a life by giving $30 — or whatever amount you choose — online or mailing your contribution to the church office. Make checks payable to FUMC and include a note stating that your contribution is for “GMF.”
