Support the Mission
There are two ways to support Katie in her ministry and mission. First, you can support the Missionary Katie Meek Education Fund which goes primarily to making education happen at the United Methodist University of Sierra Leone and across the country. Second, you can support Katie as Missionary which goes to living and housing costs.
Give to Missionary Katie Meek Education Fund
Giving to the Education Fund is a two-step process. It is very important to follow both steps so that it is clear where you intend the funds to be given. This budget gives detailed information about how these gifts are used.
Step 1 — Give to the Undesignated Sierra Leone Advance #00387A
Give online to the Undesignated Sierra Leone Advance #00387A at the bottom of the page.
Give By Phone:
Credit card gifts can be accepted by phone. The telephone number is: 888-252-6174 toll-free.
Give By Mail:
Make your check payable to ADVANCE GCFA. Write the name of the ministry and the Advance code number (#00387A) on the memo line of the check.
Send your check to:
P.O. Box 9068
New York, NY 10087-9068.
Step 2 — Let Katie know you gave!!!!
This step is very important. Send an email to three addresses (below) with the title “I gave to Missionary Katie Meek’s Education Fund”. Include the date that you gave, how much you gave and how you gave in the contents of the email. This will ensure that the money is used for its designated purpose and improve clarity and communication between the missionary, Global Ministries, and the local Bishop’s office.
Give to Katie as Missionary
Giving to Katie as missionary goes for salary support not only for Katie, but enables Global Ministries to support missionaries from everywhere to everywhere.
Give Through the Advance
You can give in Katie's name to support missionaries across the globe by giving to Advance #3022393 at bottom of Katie’s Global Ministries Missionary Page.
Establish a Covenant Relationship
Individuals, small groups, and congregations can establish a Covenant Relationship with Katie. This Covenant Relationship includes support through regular communication, mutual prayer and a financial commitment. As you fill the form, you will need her Advance #3022393.
Other Ways to Give
Katie is working as a lecturer at the United Methodist University Sierra Leone. Are you a professor? You can join her work by partnering with the University to teach a course. Are you a teacher? You can help train local teachers during the summer months. Are you a church small group passionate about education ? Ask Katie about adopting one of the 300+ local United Methodist elementary, middle, or high schools by providing school supplies for teachers and students.
Want to expand to other things? The opportunities to participate in God's Kingdom-building work in Sierra Leone are vast and varied. There are many United Methodist hospitals throughout the country in which teams can come and serve. Support the women’s training center in Bo, which teaches work skills to at-risk women. Keep children well fed through the Child Rescue Center’s village outreach programs. Support the UMC prison ministry where Christian programs of counseling, Bible study, and life skills education take place every week. If you would like details about how you can be involved in these and many more ways, contact Katie.
