The South Carolina Methodist Conference has notified UMVIM-SC that they are now ready to accept teams for the rebuild phase of our disaster recovery (October floods). Billy Robinson and his entire team did an outstanding job during the recovery phase, staff was hired by the conference to handle assessments and the time has come for our SC Volunteers to do their part.
Since the floods UMVIM-SC has trained over 50 team leaders all across our state. We know the need is great. Some have suggested that this rebuild phase could last for more than three years.
If you would like to help their is information in the conference website (www.umcsc.org). You may also contact the volunteer coordinator Stephanie Hunt 803-960-0359 or email screcovery@umcsc.org.
Many South Carolinians need your help!!

Requirements For Becoming A Team Leader

“My dear children, let’s not just talk about love; let’s practice real love.”       1 John 3:18

Some of the greatest experiences on faith journeys are mission trips.  UMVIM’s motto of “Christian Love In Action” gives the missioner the opportunity to serve our Lord in many ways in locations all over our country and around the world.  Often, the desire to lead a mission team will arise out of previous mission experiences.

There are five requirements that must be met in order for individuals to lead short-term mission teams to domestic and international locations.  They are:

  • ·       Successful participation on an UMVIM-SC team (International team leaders must have participated in an international team.  Domestic team leaders may participate in either a domestic or international team.)
  • ·       Written endorsement of their UMVIM-SC team leader (most recent is recommended).
  • ·       Written endorsement of their local pastor.
  • ·       Endorsement of the UMVIM-SC Executive Committee.
  • ·       Successful completion of both Team Leader Training and Safe Sanctuary Training.


For additional information, contact Rev. Cynthia Taylor at 864-637-8523 or cctaylor@umcsc.org.

 As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”  John 20:21
