Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church

Your church supports a missionary. Now what?


Oklahoma Conference’s Mission and Service Ministry Team wants to help churches keep enthusiasm for missionary support strong all year, by sharing a year’s worth of ideas about how to inform your congregation about these special Christian servants.

 January is a natural time to kick off an awareness campaign. Here are ideas from the General Board of Global Ministries (GBGM)

  • Introduce him or her to your church. Make sure everyone knows the missionary you support by showing a photo, a biographical sketch, and announcing her or his birthday.

  • Create a display, using an enlarged biographical sketch and photos. Place the display on an easel, near the sanctuary doors. This could be a great project for any craft group in your church!

  • Develop bulletin inserts about the missionary. Tailor them for age-specific inserts if you have worship services for teens or children.
