Hurricane Harvey devastationBe a part of the hurricane recovery

Join the NTC effort to help the Gulf Coast recover! Imagine what God could do through the 300 churches of the North Texas Conference if we focus our energy and resources on Hurricane Harvey recovery in the Rio Texas Conference and send 300 mission teams there in 2018 and 2019!

2018 Mission Trips

VIM Training

If you are planning to be a part of Hurricane Harvey recovery, please note that the Rio Texas Conference requires that all participants (youth and adult) receive UMVIM (United Methodist Volunteer in Mission) training or at least that one trip leader receives this training. The UMVIM training aims to ensure that mission teams do not inadvertently “help” in ways that hurt and nurtures attitudes of respect and true partnership with the people and communities who are served.

Every VIM training session costs $12 per person and will be held on a Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the North Texas Conference Center. Follow the links below to register:
