The Board of World Mission (BWM) is the overseas mission sending and support agency of the Moravian Church in America. It continues the work begun in 1745 by the Society for Propagating the Gospel, North America’s oldest Protestant mission society. Founded in 1949, BWM acts on behalf of the Northern Province, Southern Province, and Alaskan Province of the Moravian Church and its affiliate Unity of the Brethren.
A representative Board of Directors oversees the work of the Board of World Mission, which is also accountable to the synods of the Moravian Church in America. Meeting bi-annually, the directors determine BWM’s goals, policies, and areas of mission involvement and appoint all staff and overseas personnel.
The Board of World Mission has many resources to support you in your individual or congregational call to mission in a global context. Connect with there staff if you have interest in exploring what God may be calling you to pursue.
