Welcome to the UM & Global blog. This blog is intended to provoke conversations about the global nature of The United Methodist Church. As the church is increasingly an international institution, with members in various parts of the world, United Methodists need to rethink ecclesiology, mission, and ministry on a global scale. To help in that process, this blog seeks to provide unique content reflecting on these questions.

UM & Global is a project of the Association of Methodist Professors of Mission (AMPM), a group of American United Methodist seminary professors that teach in the areas of mission and evangelism. The blog is curated by Dr. David W. Scott on behalf of the AMPM. The content of the blog is a combination of articles by the professors of mission, articles by Dr. Scott, articles by other United Methodist scholars and leaders, and recommended readings from other context available elsewhere online. Articles contain both solicited and submitted material.
