United Women in Faith

Who We Are

United Women in Faith (UWF) seeks to connect and nurture women through Christian spiritual formation, leadership development, creative fellowship and education so that they can inspire, influence and impact local and global communities.

UWF is open to any woman, regardless of church membership, who is interested in supporting mission work to improve the lives of women, children, and youth in their local community and around the world.

Join Us!

We have six different circles, or small groups, that meet monthly for fellowship and service. Our circles are part of the national UWF organization, which has nearly half a million members that serve throughout the world. Our circles together make up the UWF unit at DUMC, and our unit serves under the Metro District in the Western North Carolina Conference of UWF. Reach out to our Membership Chair, Cameron Gardner, to help find the best circle for you!

UWF was started in 1869 by just 8 women who banded together to provide desperately needed medical aid and education to women and girls in poverty in India. For more than 150 years, UWF has worked tirelessly for justice through compassionate service and advocacy to change unfair policies and systems that harm women, children and youth—from racial and gender injustice to economic inequality, climate issues and more.

Today, UWF has grown to nearly half a million members, all with the same commitment to show up and get things done
