The United Methodist Church is a connectional church and therefore provides funds for the global ministries of the larger church body.

The World Service Fund is the heart of our denomination-wide ministry, underwriting Christian mission and ministry around the world.  This fund strengthens our evangelism efforts, stimulates church growth, expands Bible studies and enriches spiritual commitment. By giving to the World Service Fund we help God’s children everywhere shape the lives of tomorrow’s leaders and proclaim our Christian faith.

The African University Fund – continues the development of the first private university for young men and women from all over Africa; and offers post-secondary education for students through colleges of agriculture and natural resources, management and administration, theology, education, health sciences, and humanities and social services, and post-graduate faculties in agriculture, management and administration, theology, health sciences, and peace and governance

The Black College Fund – helps these institutions to maintain solid, challenging academic programs; strong faculties; and well-equipped buildings; creates vibrant spiritual environments which encourage pride and self-esteem in the accomplishments of African-Americans; provides opportunities for students to interact with academic staffs that serve as strong cultural and spiritual mentors; and prepares and educates people for the new global and technological world, but never veer from an academic excellence based on the Christian perspective of community service and social responsibility
