In the World

  • Middle East North Africa Initiative

    In partnership with Christian relief organizations on the ground, the Middle East North Africa Initiative's focus has been on empowering the local churches in the MENA region to respond in an ongoing emergency context. It is our goal to facilitate these churches who contribute to the spiritual and physical wellbeing of the displaced through pastoral training, resourcing ministries, interfaith dialogue, and missional outreach.

  • South Africa Outreach

    In 2007, Brentwood UMC funded the construction of a church building in the Tumbleweed community of South Africa. This initial relationship grew into a ministry that now connects sponsors to children and teachers in three different South African schools. At each of our partner schools, children receive a God-centered educational foundation, as well as emotional and spiritual intervention and care.

  • Ukraine Relief

    We grieve the loss of life and events unfolding across Ukraine. As we continue to follow the news of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, we lift up our prayers for the people there. We pray for their leaders and citizens. We also pray for our leaders and allies who seek to restore peace and order in this crisis. Above all, we appeal to God for wisdom and courage as we face these challenging days.
