Leading SGAUMC Forward: A Bright Future with Hope

Advance Specials

Advance Specials are those approved missions projects and personnel which local churches, groups, classes and individuals are encouraged to support. This entails giving beyond apportionments, World Service and/or Conference Benevolences. 
 

Local congregations, individuals and groups are encouraged to be faithful in helping to financially undergird these bold and creative ministries. By designating level categories through which persons are encouraged to channel their gifts, donors are helped to consider a broad spectrum of needs. These seven categories or channels are:
 

1. Africa Church Growth and Development

2. World Hunger and Poverty

3. Mission Personnel

4. Global Mission Projects

5. United Methodist Committee on Relief

6. Conference Advance Specials

7. PLUS Lane (Conference Special Support)
 

Below is a sampling of projects recommended for Second Mile giving for Lanes 1-5. to help you meet the Three Star Church challenge requirements. Additional projects can be found at https://advance.umcmission.org​.
