This mission statement of our Conference Board of Church & Society is "For the Least of These." We stand for and with those who are marginalized by society. Our work touches on many issues and challenges within society, including but not limited to:
- Children's Ministries
- Environmental Stewardship
- Human Trafficking
Our Board provides action alerts and other resources to districts and local congregations. We also work with legislatures on issues that the Church chooses to take a stand on. We also respond to emerging social issues.
...The message of salvation brought by Jesus Christ binds us together as a people and sends us forth to bring healing in the midst of strife, justice in the midst of brokenness, and love in the midst of hate. As United Methodists, we are called to invite people to enter into a community of faith responsive to a vision of justice ministries that is biblically and theologically grounded, and to invite United Methodist congregations to play a prophetic role in bringing God's vision to reality. Our mission is to advocate the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the church and society.
We enact this mission by advocating for justice in our communities. Please explore the issues we are working on to find out how you can get involved.
