Abundant Health Ministries

What is Abundant Health all about?

As United Methodists, we are committed to creating opportunities for mental, physical, and spiritual health for everyone. Our global connection is called to extend healing to all people, and we strive to bring this into reality through the Abundant Health initiative.

Explore the lifesaving possibilities for health ministry, outreach and community that will enrich your life, as well as the lives of all the people in your neighborhood and around the world.

Help fight COVID-19 globally! Love Beyond Borders

The Oregon-Idaho Conference Abundant Health team is grateful to be partners with UNICEF in "Love Beyond Borders: An Interfaith Movement to End the Pandemic." Through the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) Advance no. 3022671, we are helping to provide vaccine equity across the globe! Every dollar given through the Advance goes to UNICEF and its COVAX partners to help distribute COVID-19 vaccines so that every one of God's children has the chance to survive this awful pandemic.
