The World Methodist Council (WMC), representing Methodism in 132 countries of the world and 74 million people, designed the Ministerial Exchange Program (MEP) in 1947 to develop ties between Methodist clergy and churches in the United States and England. Its expansion now includes Methodist congregations in other countries and Methodist laity as well as clergy.
English speaking exchange opportunities are available in a number of countries, including Australia, Great Britain, India, New Zealand, South Africa and the Caribbean. Exchanges in Germany, Scandinavia, South America and other countries may require skills in the host church’s language.
