Ever since UMCOR’s inception in 1940, refugee ministry has been a part of our mission. Today, UMCOR supports the network of United Methodist Annual Conference Refugee and Immigration Ministries Coordinators (RIMcors) and other conference-level leaders as they reach out to local churches and expand the network of hospitality.
Through our partner, Church World Service, UMCOR helps to connect church members with refugees and immigrants in need. Our Church Packet and How Churches Engage with Refugees provide information on how churches can get involved. In addition, UMCOR offers a small number of modest grants to strengthen projects connected to the church that serve immigrants and refugees.
