FCC (Disciples of Christ) ~ Global Ministries
What is Global Ministries? The common witness of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ responsible for nurturing relationships with international partners on behalf of Disciples and the UCC.
Why is Global Ministries unique? No two denominations in U.S. Christianity have entered into covenantal partnership to engage in global mission together through a common structure.
What is Global Ministries' mission? To provide a Critical Presence with international partners through various ministries of acompañamiento (walking together side by side).
What is Critical Presence? The priority Global Ministries follows to timely and appropriately meet God's people and creation at the point of deepest need: spiritually, physically, emotionally, and/or economically.
How does Global Ministries send missionaries? When international partners request a missionary for a specific need that meets the Critical Presence criteria and finances are available for the appointment, then a person who can fill the role is sought.
Can I Give to Global Ministries? Gifts are welcome and can be sent to Global Ministries in either Cleveland or Indianapolis. You also may designate your gifts for any of the more than 250 special giving projects that you find on the Global Ministries website www.globalministries.org
How can I help tell the story of Global Ministries?
