Zimbabwe Global Partnership

Zimbabwe Ministry & Mission Grant 2021-22

The Baltimore-Washington Conference started its partnership and ZimVIM in 1997. With natural disasters and
COVID-19 interrupting the Pastor’s School rhythm, we have re-directed the mission share allocation in toward
disaster response and now toward local congregations already engaged in mission and ministry with Zimbabwe. This grant is for existing projects/programs. New initiatives are not eligible for this funding opportunity. If your local church has a record of building relationships, mission and ministry in Zimbabwe, then you are eligible to apply.

Please contact T. Mosley (tmosley(at)bwcumc.org) if you have any questions about the application.

About the Zimbabwe Global Partnership

In 1997, the Baltimore-Washington Conference created a partnership with United Methodists in the Zimbabwe Episcopal Area. As of 2007, the vision for the partnership focuses on working together in a spirit of chabadza to promote education, health, the training of pastors, and leadership and spiritual development. One of the cornerstones of the partnership is the Pastors’ School, held every two years at Africa University, with BWC leaders providing most of the support in resources and instructors. The next one is set for July 2017.

Since the start of the partnership, the BWC has also helped to build more than 20 parsonages and sanctuaries, along with schools and clinics, by providing $600,000 through the Hope Fund and sending many Volunteer in Mission teams to Zimbabwe.
