$10.00 per Team Member
The Board of UMVIM-NCJ is asking for the assistance of each team leader from our Jurisdiction.  Would you be willing to add a $10 per person fee into your team budget in order to help fund the UMVIM-NCJ office?  We have relied heavily on the Mission Volunteers Office of the General Board of Global Ministries for our funding but this source is diminishing as our expenses increase. The UMVIM-NCJ office offers resources that any Conference UMVIM Coordinator, mission agency or team leader can utilize.  The office maintains the National Project List and Future Teams List. It offers leadership training and other assistance to the conference UMVIM coordinators, and resources the steering committees for the teachUM, Mission Discovery and Rx ConneXion programs. 
A new mandate asked of this office has increased the work load considerably. We are assisting in improvement of the disaster response capabilities of the Jurisdiction, in coordination with the conferences and UMCOR. At the same time, we are always striving to improve the delivery of assistance and resources to the conferences. Checks can be sent to UMVIM-NCJ at 928 4th Street, Office #2, Brookings, SD 57006.
