Background/History

Malawi Missionary Conference started as a mission outreach of the Zimbabwe United Methodist Church just over a quarter of a century ago. Today, the Malawi Missionary Conference is a dynamic, but fragile community of faith with over 20,000 members and 140 churches.

Food security is a major concern in this Southern African country, and the church has been a major player in helping church members and the neighboring communities increase its food production capabilities by offering training and education on permaculture and year-round farming methods.

The conference has purchased and established a 40-acre farm which serves as a site for training, agricultural models, food and animal production, and generates income for the conference. Sustainable agriculture and animal husbandry projects are being identified and established in at least 12 of the country’s circuits. The conference is building a long-term, sustainable health ministry. A health officer education and nutrition programs for those living with AIDS and maintain diet and nutritional care to meet the special nutritional needs of HIV-exposed infants, children and pregnant women.
