The Bishop's Partners in Mission, of the Susquehanna Conference UMC, provides an opportunity to make a difference in our community, nation, and worldwide.

By being Bishop’s Partners in Mission (2016-2017), we:
• Enable Mission Central to continue to provide resources, materials, and education to churches to be active in missions and touch lives ...
• Revive hope in people struck by natural disasters by providing practical assistance ...
• Save lives and restore hope to people who are threatened by deadly disease ...

“Thank you for your partnership in mission. Together we make a difference to countless people in need. Being alive in Christ together transforms us into disciples who are positively impacting our world.”
— Bishop Jeremiah J. Park

Mission Central is the mission warehouse affiliate of the Susquehanna Conference of the United Methodist Church.  Our goal is made up of 3 key components:  Disaster Response, Mission Outreach and Mission Education.

Mission Central has been there to assist people around the world, and as a member of the UMCOR Relief Supply Network we have been able to provide aid for people affected by every major weather event since our beginning in 2002!

Locally, we have teamed with ministry partners such as the Bethesda MissionNew DigsComputer Ministry and Project C.U.R.E., providing relief and assistance right here in Central Pennsylvania and the surrounding regions.

Mission Central has been able to reach nearly 2 million people each year, locally, nationally and globally.

Mission Central truly is a place that connects God’s resources with human need.
