Our Purpose is to Elevate the Mission of the Church


By Mathew A. Pinson, GUMF President and CEO

Thank you for the trust you place in the Georgia United Methodist Foundation. I am inspired by the realization that our work is anchored by our purpose and mission, which is not replicated by any other financial institution available to Methodists in Georgia.

The purpose of the Georgia United Methodist Foundation is to partner with congregations, organizations, and individuals in direct support of the ministries and mission of the church. In this way, we are a ministry partner as we seek to live out our mission to provide faith-based financial solutions for investing, lending, training, and planned giving.

In this issue of Faith & Money, you will discover how GUMF partners with Cliftondale UMC, East Cobb UMC, and Martha Bowman UMC to elevate and advance their mission. You will also meet Brittney Haynes and Cater C. Thompson, GUMF trustees, and Kamisha Washington, a Gammon Theological Seminary student, who received a scholarship.

You are invited to join us as we live out our purpose in partnership with people called Methodists across the State of Georgia. We will always ask – how can we best help you, your church or your organization achieve your mission. To learn more, please reach out to us at 770-449-6726 or info@gumf.org.
