There are 52 million Methodists worldwide. Here’s a glimpse of who and where they are.
David W. Scott, Director of Mission Theology for the General Board of Global Ministries has analyzed locations of world Methodist denominations in his recent post in UM & Global.
He explains, “As a research aid and an aid to thinking about the shape of the global Wesleyan/Methodist movement, I have compiled maps indicating the presence of member denominations of the World Methodist Council, the ecumenical body bringing together over 70 Methodist, Wesleyan, and related United/Uniting denominations.”
Scott goes on to share conclusions from the mapping effort, including comments about the vitality of faith in various regions.
