WHO WE ARE..... As a ministry of The United Methodist Church, we provide spiritual formation, leadership development, and worship opportunities for all throughout the Southeastern Jurisdiction and beyond. We believe that informed, trained, and challenged Christians can bring much-needed transformation to the church and communities all over the world.
United Methodist Women's predecessor organizations established social service programs across the United States at the turn of the 20th century in response to the needs of marginalized and vulnerable communities— newly arrived immigrants, freed Blacks, the working poor, and indigenous peoples. Many of these programs survive today as independent, autonomous non-profit agencies referred to as National Mission Institutions. Located across the United States, United Methodist Women National Office assists these organizations through grants, technical support, and member involvement.
There are 30 National Mission Institutions within the Southeastern Jurisdiction that are empowering women, caring for children, educating youth, housing the neglected, advocating for social justice issues, creating economic opportunities and changing neighborhoods.
We shall be a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship, and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
We provide opportunities and resources to grow spiritually, become more deeply rooted in Christ and put faith into action. We are organized for growth, with flexible structures leading to effective witness and action. We equip women and girls around the world to be leaders in communities, agencies workplaces, governments and churches. We work for justice through compassionate service and advocacy to change unfair policies and systems. We provide educational experiences that lead to personal change in order to transform the world.
