Each year, United Methodist Women members prepare for faithful living and action by studying mission studies. Mission studies are offered each year – a geographical, topical, and spiritual growth study. These studies motivate, inform, and enrich our commitment to global ministry.
Local leaders are trained to lead one of the three mission studies through the organization’s Mission u program offered around the country. Those leaders, in turn, are able to lead mission studies in their local and district groups.
