for Native Americans?

The United Methodist Church recognizes the need to equip and empower Native American pastors, congregations and seminary students to do what only they can do: authentically worship and serve Jesus. A portion of your donation on Native American Ministries Sunday helps fund a scholarship for designed for Native American students pursuing a degree in ministry.


Native American Ministries Sunday serves to remind United Methodists of the gifts and contributions made by Native Americans to our society. With more than 20,000 Native Americans within the denomination, this special Sunday helps to ensure that Native American United Methodist leaders are recognized. It was officially recognized in 1988 and has been celebrated on the 3rd Sunday of Easter since 1989. An offering is taken on this Special Sunday to develop and strengthen Native American ministries in the Annual Conferences, Native American rural, urban, reservation ministries and communities relating to the General Board of Global Ministries. It also provides scholarships for Native Americans attending United Methodist schools of theology distributed by the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry.
