The Desert Southwest Conference United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) is providing gateways and recommendations for collaboration and partnership opportunities. If your church is already planning a mission trip and is able to offer open enrollment for persons outside of your church, please contact Mike Eyer at  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 are known to provide excellent mission trip offerings. His recent Facebook Group post includes this recommendation.
