Methodists Remain United in Mission for Christ!

Bishop Schol held a series of tele-conferences with clergy and laity regarding the recent reports about a proposal which would create a schism in the United Methodist Church. The media reports incorrectly characterized the proposals as decisions. The Bishop fielded a wide range of questions to debunk the rumors and to ensure us that the UM Church will continue to focus on our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the world.

Kafakumba Pastors School is 55 Years Old!

In the Great Commission, Jesus tells His followers to Go- make disciples.  All over the World.  Years ago, Americans Ken and Lorraine Enright took that command to heart and did more than just think or talk about it.  They went to Africa, and eventually established a Pastor’s School on the shores of Lake Kafakumba (in what is now the Congo).  The Kafakumba Pastor’s School is now 55 years old. For a background on what the Kafakumba Pastor’s School is, check out their video...

PUMC Helps Send Mexican Kids to School

One of the ministries we support is a United Methodist Church in La Palmilla, Mexico.  They are a growing church without the financial means to provide the resources needed by their ministry.  For years, we have raised money and sent mission teams to La Palmilla to help them build a new sanctuary.  The construction has finally been completed, and the church dedicated their new sanctuary in 2016. But sending their children to school is another difficulty they have.  In the US we take it for...
