Welcome to the Pan-Methodist Campaign for Children in Poverty.mother embracing smiling children

Reading the Campaign booklet is a first step for becoming familiar with this Pan-Methodist initiative.  It offers information and resources to encourage your activism in this Campaign. The Campaign’s booklet can be downloaded from this website.  

We also hope that you will contribute information about your work with children.  Your description of ministries that serve children will be helpful to others who want to deepen their involvement to care for children in poverty (see “Be Involved”).

You can influence the Campaign’s effectiveness.  Be involved.  Offer your ideas.  Encourage others to be involved.   Methodists are a connectional people of faith who confer (i.e. “conference”) and cooperate to enact their Christian discipleship.

Trusting in God, we dare to envision a world in which every child experiences love, care, and hope.  Together we can be the difference in the lives of children in poverty.
