Serve Globally

The needs in our world compel us to launch out beyond our community. Here are some of our current priorities in global outreach:

Missions Trips

Are you feeling called to MISSIONS?
University Carillon has built relationships with several missionaries and ministries throughout the world – including the Bahamas, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Rwanda, and Kenya.  We are currently involved at several locations in the Dominican Republic and in Cuba, but always looking for God’s calling.  Is God calling you?  If so, come join us.

Please pray for members of our church–and others who are ministering alongside us or in our name—on these trips:

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR)

Through this not-for-profit global humanitarian aid organization of the United Methodist Church, we respond to situations—whether caused by war, conflict or natural disaster—to alleviate human suffering in more than 80 countries.

The Dominican Republic

Jackie’s House

Each year we send a missions team to minister at Jackie’s House—private orphanage in the Dominican Republic established by “Tia Jackie and Tio Hernando.” The house ministers to handicapped, abused and neglected children, in Jesus’ name, and regularly provides aid to children who live and work at the local dump.

Jackie’s House relies completely on donations.

DR/Rick and Barb Sucher

We have an ongoing relationship with Rick and Barb Sucher and their family who are missionaries in the Dominican Republic. Under the auspices of Missionary Ventures, Rick and Barb moved to the city of Sousa where they work with various ministries overseeing a Bible school, administering a children’s feeding program, teaching women to sew for a living, and going door-to-door and pastoring pastors.
We send missions teams to work with the Suchers about once a year.

SISTER CHURCHES IN CUBA

We send teams as often as possible to minister alongside three “sister churches” in the Holguin province of Cuba.

Zion Methodist Children’s Home (The Bahamas)

On tiny Current Island, a short ferry ride from the northwest shore of Eleuthera in the Bahamas, a group of people in Zion Methodist Church dreamed of building a home to care for children that lacked basic necessities and care. We have helped that dream to become a reality.
