National & International Missions
Director of Missions & Community Outreach
We take the call of Jesus in Matthew 28 to “Go into all the world” very seriously. Our international missions have served in Tanzania, Haiti, Cuba, Bolivia, Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Brazil, and other countries around the world. As we come out of Covid protocols in the coming months, we will be seeking ways to serve in the United States.
McFarlin has been blessed to be able to partner with and support the ministry of Pastor Umba and Ngoy Kalangwa in Tanzania for many years. As you see from this video, what they have accomplished in the Name of Jesus Christ throughout Tanzania has been life-changing and impactful; it has addressed immediate needs and long-terms needs that have transformed the lives of so many people.
Thanks to the faithful giving of McFarlin people, we have been able to help support the Kalangwa’s efforts in Tanzania. And, we look forward to many amazing things in the years to come.
In late June 2023 we hope to send a team from McFarlin back to Tanzania. This will be our first mission there since the Summer of 2018! We are looking for people with a variety of skills to travel as ambassadors from McFarlin! If you are interested in traveling on this mission, please contact Scott Meier via email or call the church 405-321-3484.
Praying for Peace in Ukraine – How You Can Help
Throughout the past few worship services we’ve turned our collective hearts towards the people of Ukraine with prayers of peace. As the situation has been unfolding, we’ve been attentive to the most effective ways we can pour our prayers into support. The United Methodist Committee on Relief has created a relief offering where 100% of financial gifts given goes directly to relief efforts. Learn more here.
Gifts to support the people of Ukraine can be made in the following ways:
- By toll-free telephone: 888-252-6174
- By check made out to Global Ministries/UMCOR with “Advance #982450-Ukraine” written on the memo line, either mailed and addressed to Global Ministries/UMCOR, GPO, P.O. Box 9068, New York, NY, 10087-9068 or given at or through any United Methodist church
One hundred percent of all Advance contributions go to the designated cause.
The United Methodist community in Ukraine, though quite small, is actively engaged in assisting neighbors in need. Global Ministries is in touch with the church’s leadership as well as with church leaders in countries welcoming those who are fleeing from violence in Ukraine, and our hearts and actions are with them.
