West Michigan

“Creating Disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World.”
That is the mission of the West Michigan Conference of The United Methodist Church. Comprised of six Districts with 400 churches and approximately 60,000+ members throughout the state, the vision statement of The West Michigan Conference celebrates that we are “All connected in mission.” Together we are on a journey of hope, love and healing, along with United Methodists and others around the world. Working with others, we find we are able to make a greater difference than we could make alone.
Christ still calls us to reach out beyond ourselves to neighbors up close and far away. And we respond with our dollars, with our time, and with our prayers. Through The United Methodist “connection” we are linked — as individuals and as congregations — in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed in more than 125 countries.
