The General Board of Global Ministries (GBGM) has developed a program called "The Advance" to which individuals and local churches can donate to support individual mission projects. 100% of your donation goes straight to fund mission work in that area. The Advance allows you to search ministries areas when you consider to donate. Consider a particular project to support by your church, or your family. Click here for more details.
To support greater mission work across the globe, you can also partner with United Methodist Volunteers in Mission in order to keep UMVIM's great work going. Your donation will allow UMVIM to seek out new mission projects, and support their connections with the churches, individuals, and teams which span the globe year-round. Click here for more details.
There are also local North Alabama ministries which you can also partner with, and give support directly. Click here for a list of current North Alabama Conference Advance Specials.
