Fueling the Future of Ministry Today


We believe all are called to be servant ministers and UMFI lives out this calling by serving the clergy, congregations and agencies within the Indiana Annual Conference.


We believe in supporting and resourcing United Methodist churches to make disciples for Christ for the transformation of the world.


We believe in our churches and know that helping them establish and maintain the financial resources necessary to achieve their missions is one of God’s challenges to the UMFI. Learn more


We believe connecting people who have a desire to support ministry with ministries that are changing lives and making disciples for Christ is a fundamental calling for UMFI. Learn more


We believe that training clergy and congregations in financial areas allows them to create self-sustaining financial ministries in stewardship and planned giving. Learn More


We provide professionally managed investment pools for our churches to use for their endowments and other investment funds.

We manage more than 90 endowments and trusts, with several benefiting a specific church or ministry.


We are actively engaged in several fundraising campaigns. Donate today to make a difference.
