"Help select the sites for VIM trips, recruit team leadership, plan and coordinate trips, take part in fund-raising and serve as a volunteer for a VIM project."
Reisterstown United Methodist Church reaches out to our neighbors in need, both far and near. Through our Volunteers in Mission (VIM) program, our church has accomplished a number of miracles performing God's work in ways that benefit those less fortunate or who are victims of natural disasters.
Our VIM teams have completed over 50 trips to areas that are underserved or damaged by tornadoes, hurricanes, or floods. More than 800 volunteers have given their time to help build or repair churches, homes, or help in any way they could.
RUMC VIM teams have been deployed to 15 US states, most recently to the Florida Panhandle, Georgia, and South Carolina. International trips have included Jamaica, Nicaragua, and Zimbabwe.
Our VIM teams are diverse groups of people offering many talents. Training is provided. All that is required to volunteer is the desire to do the Lord’s work and help a neighbor in need.
Any past volunteer will tell you that the benefits far outweigh any sacrifice. The people helped, the friends made, skills learned, and fun had working together with Christ make these trips more joyous than any vacation can offer.
