" I came so that they could have life - indeed, so that they could live to the fullest."

(John 10:10b, CEB)

Making Joy Happen

Watch this short video to learn about the Joy Cottage, whose construction was funded by DUMC. This transitional housing, run by Hope House Foundation, will change the future of people’s lives in our community.


About DUMC Missional Impact

We will be a congregation committed to and sent out to engage in sustainable and transformational missions so that all God’s children can live life to the fullest.

We will initiate and implement a culture which encourages this Body of Christ to engage in missions which balance short-term relief with long-term sustainable transformation.

Empowerment: Doing all we can to help make people and their communities stronger and more confident in controlling their lives and making their own decisions and choices.

Sustainability: Choosing approaches that can be implemented by helpers and recipients together and continued for the long term after helpers go home.

Focus on both Justice and Compassion: Compassion: helping to alleviate the pain and suffering of others. Justice: examining the systemic causes of pain and suffering and working to eradicate them.

Relational: Provide opportunities to build long-term relationships.

Help not Hurt: Ensure that human dignity is preserved above all else. Create no dependencies. Safeguard local economies.
