What do the boards and agencies of the UMC do?

April 5, 2012

The United Methodist News Service asked the 13 boards and agencies of the current UMC structure five questions.

1. One issue to be debated at  General Conference is restructuring. What would the church miss if your agency  no longer existed?

2. What is your agency’s primary  mission? How do you accomplish this in the most effective manner?

3. Name at least one exciting thing in  which your agency has been involved during the current quadrennium. How does it  relate to the Four Areas of Focus?

4. How does the average United Methodist  pastor or member benefit from your agency’s work? Social advocacy? Curriculum?  Scholarships? Please give a concrete example, ideally quoting a testimonial from  someone outside of your agency.

5. How much money and  how many employees does it take to maintain the work your agency is currently  doing?
