Global Ministries


Our Global Outreach

We send Friends to find ways to bless the people and nations where they live. It’s one of our answers to Jesus’ call to love God and love our neighbors, at home and throughout the world.

We’re yearning for Spirit-led ministry that bears fruit, whether or not it results in a Friends faith community. The Friends we send are rooted in relationship with Jesus Christ and aligned to NWYM Faith and Practice. We seek to express God’s love in thought, word, and deed. We pray that this love-as-service extends the Kingdom of God.

Please click through to find more information about the people we send, and how you can help send them—or how you can offer your own gifts and presence internationally.

It’s work that’s sometimes frustrating, and always blessed. Please pray about how you could participate—

  • to serve internationally in short-term or long-term ways,
  • to donate financially,
  • to pray for the workers and the people they serve,
  • to volunteer or lend other key support through your church.

For more information, please contact Shawn McConaughey, associate superintendent,  at 503-476-3383 or
