“Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
Isaiah 6:8

UM Volunteers In Mission exists to promote, encourage and enable  
Christians to exemplify “Christian Love in Action” through short-term mission service at home and abroad. The task of each team is to use their abilities (such as medical care, teaching, constructions or repair a building) to lift up Jesus Christ and serve where we are called. IRUMC sends a team of volunteers annually to help countries in need. Past journeys have been to serve in Haiti, in 2020 we partnered with Mission Guatemala to serve the people of the Lake Atitlan region of Panajachel, Guatemala with plans to return annually and build a long term relationship with this ministry.
