United Women In Faith

 United Women in Faith, (formerly United Methodist Women), is a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.

Recently, the United Methodist Women took on a new name (a new logo and a new website) to better reflect how we answer our calling today. It’s an exhilarating time, as we commit to even greater inclusivity, action and impact. We remain women of passion and power, united by God’s love in our mission to support women, children and youth. 

Our new name is part of the refreshment of our organization that includes a new look, new feel and new and improved programs designed to better nurture current members and welcome new women into our sisterhood. We will have the opportunity to join together to put our love into action!

For more information visit our new website at www.uwfaith.org. Also, more information can be found in our response magazine March/April 2022 edition. You may also contact Conference UWF President, Linda Yost, at , your District UWF Presidents, or your PAG (Program Advisory Group) members:  Colleen Cates, National Director, ; Mikele Delmore, NEJ (Northeastern Jurisdiction) President, .  

 Within the denomination, United Women in Faith have approximately 800,000 members whose mission is fostering spiritual growth, developing leaders, and advocating for justice. Members raise up to $20 million each year for programs and projects related to women, children, and youth in the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world.
