BEYOND Our Borders
AUMC has been active in ministering to communities abroad since 1989 when we took our first international mission trip to Brazil with the help of the United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM). Since that time, we have sent numerous teams around the world to locations such as Puerto Rico, Panama, Venezuela, Mexico, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Haiti, Ecuador, The Bahamas, and Cuba. As ministry partners we not only visit these locations regularly, but build ongoing relationships that encourage and nurture the spiritual growth of our brothers and sisters in Christ.
It is important to realize that although serving on a short term mission trip is a large and sometimes life changing commitment of time and resources, it should not be the culmination of Christian service or considered a sole requirement. Christian service is a daily attitude of worship, prayer, study and action. A mission trip should be an extension of the Christian life.
We encourage everyone to get involved in some way by going on a trip or supporting a trip member financially and prayerfully. You can also help us to support one of the ministries we partner with. We know that God has called each of us to care for His people and we count it as an honor to be living out that calling in the foreign locations where He has chosen to send our church.
