Native American Ministries Sunday is May 8

Native American Ministries Sunday is only two months away. Be sure to order your free offering resources to promote the May 8 offering that supports Native American ministries and helps United Methodist Native American seminarians to become church leaders.

Approximately 22,310 United Methodists identify themselves as Native American. About 225 United Methodist churches, fellowships and ministries relate to Native Americans.

“Not many of our pastors have gone to seminary,” says scholarship recipient the Rev. David Dunson about Native American clergy. “But now, I can bring the message of hope through education to encourage my people.”

Dunson sees his scholarship as “a gift from God, an answered prayer.”

His message of hope is possible because of your generous gifts to the Native American Ministries Sunday offering.
