About the organiser:
The Methodist Missions Society (MMS) was established in 1991 as the missions agency of The Methodist Church in Singapore. It is the first homegrown denomination-based missionary-sending agency in Singapore.

MMS seeks to establish indigenous churches supported by mission endeavours in communities across our region where there is no Methodist presence. Through MMS, The Methodist Church in Singapore is positioned at the forefront of reaping in God’s harvest fields.

MMS is committed towards encouraging, enlisting, engaging and empowering Methodists to serve in missions by partnering, praying for, and participating with MMS to reach those whom Jesus died to redeem. They believe God has called them to help rebuild, restore, and reconcile people and communities back to Him.

MMS provides widening opportunities in the harvest fields – evangelising, equipping and nurturing new believers, making disciples, establishing mission endeavours, and church planting. And MMS is touching and making a difference through social concerns, healthcare, education, livelihood projects, and practical assistance.

The current focus is on the Asian region particularly Cambodia, East Asia, Laos, Nepal, Thailand, Timor-Leste, and Vietnam owing to their proximity to Singapore and the immense opportunities to reach the large numbers of unreached people groups in these countries for Christ.
