The VISION of the West District is that churches in the district will become growing and vibrant places of ministry, living out the Great Commandment to love one another and the Great Commission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
The MISSION of the West district is to provide an interactive network that facilitates the making and sustaining of Christian disciples for the transformation of the world through nurture, outreach and witness.
The STRATEGIC PLAN is that at least 25% of the churches in the West District will be transformed and known as Radically Welcoming, Intentionally Witnessing, and Passionately Worshipping congregations, with an Extravagant World-View for missions.
The West District of the United Methodist Church wishes to share resources and information from the Texas Annual Conference grants page. There are numerous resources available including the Texas Annual Conference Missions Endowment.
