About Us

Since 1853, the United Brethren in Christ have been on mission with God in North America, Africa, the Caribbean, Central America, Europe, South Asia and East Asia. Today, UB Global embodies the collective international ministries of the United Brethren in Christ of Canada and the United States with direct ministries in 19 countries and partner ministries in others.
