The Advance is an accountable, designated arm of The Alabama-West Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church ensuring 100% of each gift is used for its intended mission or ministry.  These gifts fulfill both physical and spiritual needs to make a life-changing and long-lasting impact. 

The Advance exists to share the love of Jesus Christ by offering hope and alleviating human suffering.  With integrity, transparency, and a commitment to The United Methodist Church’s connectional vision of the world, the Advance provides a conduit enabling persons and churches to support mission and ministry projects within the bounds of the Alabama-West Florida Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.
