Mission organization announces plans to start 600 new faith communities

Using online video technology, directors of the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries in New York engaged in prayer and song with representatives of the Honduras and Vietnam mission initiatives and the Malawi Provisional Annual Conference.
The virtual global gathering was part of a celebration of the 574 new worshipping communities in 13 mission initiatives in Southeast Asia, Eurasia, Africa, and Latin America. That number far exceeds the original goal of 400 church plants for the 2008-2012 quadrennium.
