Chair: 

Conference Secretary of Global Ministries: 

The General Board of Global Ministries is the global mission agency of The United Methodist Church, its annual conferences, missionary conferences and local congregations. 

Global Ministries has personnel, programs and mission partners in 136 countries. It facilitates international and domestic mission, including missionary service. 

Global Ministries is committed to connecting the church in mission. Sending missionaries — including young adults — from everywhere to everywhere; partnering and engaging with volunteers; evangelizing and church planting through mission initiatives; addressing diseases of poverty and global health; and responding to natural and civil disasters remain essential functions of the global church if we are to grow and be a vital presence for making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
