Volunteers in Mission
Ministries of Faith in Action
Looking for mission opportunities?
Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) provides gateways and recommendations for collaboration and partnership opportunities. If your church is planning a mission trip and can offer open enrollment for persons outside of your church, please contact Mike Eyer at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or visit https://www.facebook.com/groups/dscumvim/ to share your mission trip invitation. Likewise, if your church is looking for a mission trip opportunity, contact Mike Eyer via email or on the Facebook group to find out about volunteer trips this summer and beyond.
In addition to the church-to-church opportunities, Mike has researched other organizations that provide excellent mission trip offerings. His recent Facebook Group post includes this recommendation.
