The General Board of Global Ministries is the agency of the United Methodist Church that resources and supports the church (regional bodies, annual conferences, missionary conferences, local congregations, and individuals) as we live out the varieties of calls to mission that come from following Jesus.
WPA Missions is pleased and excited to introduce Bruce Griffith as our new Conference Secretary of Global Ministries (CSGM). Bruce’s hope as CSGM is that he will be able to resource our churches with information about the work of GBGM (our mission agency) in sharing God’s love for us in Christ through our words and service throughout the world. We are reminded that Jesus called the disciples to go to all the world (Acts 1:8) and our work is not yet complete.
Bruce will be working with various committees within our Annual Conference structure, Conference Staff, other CSGM’s and District Mission Representatives to assist our churches as we seek to fulfill the mission to which Christ has called us.
Missionaries need our support more than ever these days as they remain in mission during this crisis. This support can be in prayers, relationships, and monetary support. Our Connectional Apportionment contributions help support all of the missionaries but they all need a little extra help too. Below is a list of featured missionaries from our Conference Secretary of Global Ministries (CSGM).
