Each Advance project and ministry is vetted and approved by Global Ministries Advance staff?
The Advance giving channel is based on relationships and accountability. Each project is vetted and approved by the bishop or church leadership in the country where the project is located, Global Ministries staff and leadership team and The Advance committee. Each project must demonstrate to work in partnership with the communities where they serve and are expected to show alignment as well as the priorities of the bishop or other church leadership in the regions of the project and with the goals of The United Methodist Church.
ABOUT THE ADVANCE
The Advance is an accountable, voluntary giving platform that supports the worldwide mission of The United Methodist Church. The Advance channel ensures 100% of each gift reaches its intended mission or ministry. You decide which program or ministry to support through The Advance platform. The purpose of The Advance is to: 1) be an educational tool connecting with the ministries being established around the world; 2) be an evangelical vehicle to rebuild and expand faith communities and churches; and 3) provide a safe channel to send aid to those in need and other displaced and hurting people. The Advance work is managed through the General Board of Global Ministries.
