    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church


    ministries

    Global Ministries Team

    The Conference Global Ministries team recruits, interviews, and recommends people being called to become missionaries of the General Board of Global Ministries (GBGM). Once commissioned and deployed, the team encourages churches to be supporters of the missionaries and helps coordinate visits to the churches when the missionaries return home. The Global Ministries team maintains the list of Conference Advance Specials as missions and ministries to be supported by local churches throughout the Conference. This year the team has also taken on the oversight and promotion of the Africa University Endowed Scholarship for the Conference.

    For more information, contact the Rev. Jeff Childs, chair at revchilds@hotmail.com.


    With more than 134,000 members, the Upper New York Annual (Regional) Conference of The United Methodist Church comprises 865 local churches and 85 new faith communities in 12 districts, covering 48,000 square miles in 49 of the 62 counties in New York state. Our mission is to “live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to be God’s love with our neighbors in all places."
