Our desire is for many to actively engage with the various WMU Compassion Ministries. Through Compassion Ministries Connections, individuals, churches, and groups can engage with compassion ministries in the United States
WMU Compassion Ministries offer you the opportunity to directly help suffering people throughout the world. Together we can bring assistance to those who live in poverty, offer hope to victims of human exploitation, create a sense of belonging and safety for refugees, provide relief to those in need of humanitarian aid, and support vulnerable children and the families who care for them.
Through WMU Compassion Ministries, individuals have the chance to overcome the obstacles caused by poverty. For some, this looks like job-readiness classes and tutoring to prepare for high school equivalency exams. For others, this means social entrepreneurship opportunities that provide them with a job that brings hope and dignity. Most importantly, men and women are learning about our Father and growing in their relationship with Him.
Our desire is for many to actively engage with WMU Compassion Ministries. Through Compassion Ministries Connections, individuals, churches, and groups can engage with compassion ministries in the United States.
You can become involved with Compassion Ministries Connections in the following way:
STEP 1: FIND A GROUP TO SUPPORT A MINISTRY WITH.
This could be your WMU group, a small group, a group of friends, or even your church community. If you don’t have a group, you can choose to do this as an individual.
STEP 2: GET TOGETHER WITH YOUR GROUP AND SELECT A PARTNER.
Visit the Compassion Ministries Connections web page to browse all compassion ministries partners. Select a ministry partner to connect with your group. After you sign up with the form on the web page to connect with a compassion ministry partner, you will receive an email introducing you and your group to the ministry leader. You will be in direct contact with the ministry leader to learn the best ways you can pray for and support the ministry.
STEP 3: DISCOVER HOW YOU CAN PRAY FOR AND SUPPORT THE MINISTRY YOU’VE CHOSEN.
This could include providing ministry participants with an Easter treat in April or celebrating participants graduating in May. Maybe you can provide notes of encouragement throughout the semester or sponsor a Christmas event in December.
We encourage you to connect with the ministry leaders at least quarterly to see how you can best encourage them. Your encouragement, support, and prayer will impact the lives of many and provide hope through Jesus Christ.
