Pan-Methodist Campaign for Children in Poverty works to “affirm the Wesleyan heritage to care for the poor by encouraging ‘the people called Methodist’ to serve children and youth at risk to poverty.” Since 1985, its primary objective is to foster meaningful cooperation among the African Methodist Episcopal, African Methodist Episcopal Zion, African Union Methodist Protestant, Christian Methodist Episcopal, United Methodist, and Union American Methodist Episcopal Churches in their work with children around the globe.
The mission of the organization has two purposes:
1. To renew and empower the efforts of Methodist churches, agencies, and seminaries already serving children and youth at risk to poverty.
2. To challenge and enable all Methodist churches and seminaries to establish ministries to children and youth at risk to poverty.
This week, the Southeastern Jurisdiction called for a special offering to support the important work and initiatives of the Pan Methodist Campaign for Children in Poverty, supporting children around the world. The members responded with love and generosity raising $6,000 to go to support important programs serving children at risk from helping children in war-torn Liberia return to school to fighting human trafficking. The loving offering by the Southeastern Jurisdiction is a shining example of how we all can make a difference in the lives of children.
