Volunteers in Mission
VIM transforms the world through Christian love in action.
United Methodist Volunteers in Mission provides you with the opportunity to be a short-term missionary. UMVIM volunteers go out in teams to do construction and spiritual formation projects for people and places in need. They are people of all different skill levels, serving as the hands and eyes of Christ. UMVIM gives hope to the hopeless and provides opportunities for spiritual growth.
Note: UMVIM teams must register with the Baltimore-Washington Conference to ensure that proper insurance and training are provided. Contact Rev. Joan Carter-Rimbach for additional information.
