Evangelism

Chairperson: Bishop Michael Watson (United Methodist Church, USA)

Director of World Evangelism (staff): Rev. Dr. Kimberly Reismann (United Methodist Church, USA)

World Evangelism was launched in 1971 when the World Methodist Conference in Denver, Colorado declared: ‘It is time for all the people called Methodists to go on World Mission and Evangelism together! We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ’s Commission to His church to preach the Gospel and to make Disciples is the supreme business of the Church. God through the Holy Spirit is calling the Methodist people everywhere to a strengthened and sustained thrust in world mission and evangelism.’

World Evangelism seeks to be faithful to the vision in the following key strategic areas of ministry: Connecting Congregations in Christ; Multiplying the Witnesses of Christ; Training Leaders in Evangelism; Developing Resources for Evangelism; To see the Methodist Movement alive, vibrant, growing and yearning to spread the good news of Christ Jesus throughout the whole world through word, deed and sign!
