PRUMC Global Missions

The role of charity is to eliminate need. The role of justice is to eliminate charity.

Seeking justice is hard work, but it is a vital part of what God calls us to do. In a just world, children wouldn’t die of preventable diseases and families wouldn’t exist in extreme poverty. That’s where we come in.

We can’t save the world, but we can change the world. And we are. PRUMC missions go deep. We commit to a place and a people and work toward long-term improvement of health, education and well-being. As we continue our work of empowering communities, we see success in the eyes of those we are helping to attain a better life.

Great things happen when we listen to God’s call and have a heart to serve. Whether you are contemplating a mission trip for the first time, or are a veteran trip participant,we know we can all make a difference together. Make missions your next step to experiencing God in a whole new way.
