Meet some UMC missionaries


Like pastors, many missionaries are starting out in new locations on July 1. Because of the pandemic, they are unable to travel and meet with churches and organizations to share about their call as a missionary or the areas where they are currently serving. Instead, the General Board of Global Ministries is offering virtual opportunities to meet with and hear about various missionaries. 

One of those opportunities will be on July 16, 2020 at 1:00  PM. 
Registration is REQUIRED for everyone.
You will see there is a place to pick who you want to meet with.  Please select the missionary that you want to learn about. Rev. Julie Wilson will be serving in Winston-Salem at Open Arms Community Center, while the others are serving internationally.
