WHY IS THIS A MODEL CHURCH?

St. Paul’s UMC is a model church because they are committed to the church’s own motto of “Open hearts. Open minds. Open doors”. They make it their priority to welcome newcomers by creating a warm and friendly church atmosphere. St. Paul’s has established a strong presence in the community by partnering with local agencies and community centers. They believe with the help of Igniting Ministry training resources, it equips them better to do the work that they are called to do within the community.
