2018 Annual Report Letter From Our Leadership


Dear Friends in Christ,

From the Israelites working together to rebuild the wall around Jerusalem to Jesus sending out His disciples in groups of two to launch their ministry, the Bible provides wonderful examples of teamwork. The Georgia United Methodist Foundation’s 2018 Annual Report shares some inspiring, modern-day examples of how we are working together to impact lives in the name of Jesus Christ.

By putting your faith and money into action, you are tackling student debt and training pastors in personal and church financial literacy. By giving sacrificially and investing wisely, you are reducing church debt, creating vital congregations and ministries, and bringing hope to a hurting world. And by establishing endowments, creating wills, and leaving legacy gifts, you are not only providing for loved ones, you are investing in future generations and your beloved church.

Thank you for all you do to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world!

God bless you!
