New Town UMC has been blessed to be able to partner with other Christians around the world in mission. Summarized below are some the countries where we have taken groups and/or have ongoing mission partnerships. We encourage and support a variety of international trips for individuals as well. If you have questions about International Missions at NTUMC, please contact the church office.
The Methodist church in Cuba has been experiencing powerful revival over the past 17 years, and New Town has sent several mission teams to help further the revival in partnership with Rick Bonfim ministries. The teams have gone all over the island of Cuba, preaching in various churches, supporting the development of local leaders, and doing acts of service wherever possible.

In 2013, NTUMC partnered with Go International to minister in the nation of Trinidad. The team did Vacation Bible School, served orphans and homeless adults, and did outreaches in this spiritually diverse country.
Two missionaries from our congregation, Donald and Carol Paige, have been serving in Paraguay since 2008. We have an ongoing relationship with the Paiges, and a team from New Town was sent in 2013 to serve with them. The Paiges are working to support the local Methodist church in Paraguay, building relationships with local churches and ministries, and being a witness for Christ.
In 2011, we sent a team to Siuna, Nicaragua to support local churches there. The teams did medical mission outreaches, VBS, helped with construction of a new church, and prayed for many people!
In 2012, we went with Go International to Columbia to work with a local church and assist with a feeding ministry in Bogota. Team members helped with Vacation Bible Schools, hygiene training, and pastor and youth conferences.
