Mobilizing Partnership

The Missouri Conference of the United Methodist Church has teamed up with YouthWorks to help mobilize UMC youth across the state to serve.

COVID-19 has impacted our world in unprecedented ways, and our churches have been responding like never before to the needs around them. But COVID has also made it incredibly difficult to mobilize teenagers to serve.

With that in mind, the Missouri Conference of the United Methodist Church has teamed up with YouthWorks to equip churches with what they need to mobilize their youth ministries to serve in their own communities, and on a mission trip this summer.
