United Methodist Women (national office) is the policy-making body that manages and oversees the programs and projects of United Methodist Women (UMW). United Methodist Women is the largest denominational faith organization for women with approximately 800,000 members whose mission is fostering spiritual growth, developing leaders and advocating for justice. We accomplish this by equipping women, girls and youth around the world to be leaders in communities, agencies, workplaces, governments and churches and to advocate for the oppressed and dispossessed with special attention to the needs of women and children. UMW builds supportive communities among women; engages in activities that foster growth in the Christian faith, mission education, and Christian social involvement, while working for justice through compassionate service and advocacy to change unfair policies and systems and providing educational experiences that lead to personal change in order to transform the world.
United Methodist Women is an Equal Opportunity Employer and actively encourages candidates of diverse backgrounds (men and women) to apply for employment. Applicants must meet the minimum requirements in terms of qualifications. An equivalent combination of education and experience will be considered unless specifically stated otherwise.
