UMC Partners in Ministry

The Ministry Partner Program of The General Council on Finance and Administration was created with the vision of providing connection within the denomination. GCFA seeks to build relationships with vendors and businesses outside of the connection in an effort to provide vetted and approved services to United Methodist ministries. Our collective group of partners serve all the areas of the United Methodist Connection as we all work together to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

“Right from the beginning, it has been incredible to work with the GCFA team as a partner. We have been given so many opportunities to share about Vanco’s services in publications, through events, and by hosting webinars. I feel like they (Kellie and Tammie) are always looking for extra ways to help us connect with UMC conferences and churches and that means so much. We love serving UMC churches and can’t imagine this effort without our GCFA partnership.”

Jenny Lutter, Director of Faith Partnerships, Vanco
