Are you curious about why Global Ministries uses the words “mission co-workers” instead of “missionaries?” Learn more about the UCC’s global mission involvement through Global Ministries with partner organizations and mission co-workers during this learning hour. You’ll get an overview of Global Ministries programs and the many resources available, including worship materials, educational resources, advocacy opportunities, and hands-on mission.
