We believe missions is a lifestyle; therefore, we provide missions education resources for all age-levels—from preschoolers to senior adults. Whatever your age or stage in life, we have missions resources for you. Through missions, others may hear of Jesus, the giver of eternal life.
Founded in 1888, WMU is a missions organization that has educated and involved generations upon generations in Christian missions. Our purpose—to challenge Christian believers to understand and be radically involved in the mission of God—is accomplished through our age-level missions organizations, hands-on missions opportunities, and additional resources produced by WMU.
WMU is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, that offers a vast array of missions resources including curriculum for age-level organizations in churches, volunteer opportunities, conferences, leadership training, ministry ideas and models, books, and much more. To financially support our ministry, we operate three lines of business: WMU missions education resources, WorldCrafts, and New Hope Publishers.
The main purpose of WMU is to educate and involve preschoolers, children, students, and adults in the cause of Christian missions. WMU supports the following organizations through age-appropriate magazines and/or products:
WorldCrafts is a nonprofit, fair-trade ministry of WMU which imports and markets unique handmade gifts in the United States from more than 25 countries on 5 continents. Begun in 1996, WorldCrafts works with artisans and develops their businesses according to Fair Trade Federation guidelines.
This ministry provides a microenterprise opportunity that helps local contacts cross cultural boundaries as they establish relationships with local communities and people groups by helping to alleviate poverty. Some crafts are made in very small villages where the money earned goes toward creating a better living environment for the artisans, and in some cases, for the whole village.
