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.
In the Wesleyan tradition, Church and Society Team of the Minnesota Annual Conference seeks justice in a variety of social issue contexts. This team:
• Provides educational opportunities through workshops and action items
• Encourages members of the churches to act in ways that show the love of Jesus Christ by helping those without a voice
• Administers Peace and Justice grants to provide funds for both local congregations and United Methodist related agencies engaged in ministries to promote peace and advocate for the poor and the marginalized and to develop programs that work towards justice.
Applicants for this grant must be a Minnesota United Methodist local church, district, annual conference, or other affiliated organization, or an ecumenical group/organization working with and through at least one United Methodist agency or organization.
