BE A VOLUNTEER
MMS provides widening opportunities in the harvest fields - evangelising, equipping and nurturing new believers, making disciples, establishing mission endeavours, and church planting.
We believe it is God's timing for The Methodist Church in Singapore to move up to the forefront of missions. With more Spirit-led 'open doors' before us, let us step forward to join other Methodists in missions to touch and transform lives of those needing the Lord Jesus Christ.
Mission Partners & Volunteers (MPV) is a special group of people who are willing to be used by God - to bring His blessings with a greater potential at a larger extent of outreach!
You can be an MPV (Mission Partners & Volunteers) too!
