In November of 2006, Mission Central began to search for a way to enable persons from the more distant regions to be able to participate in the kind of volunteer and service activities experienced in Mechanicsburg, without having to travel so far. Mission Central had to find a way to help our volunteers help us continue to connect God’s resources with human need.

HUBs were created in February of 2007. A HUB would be a smaller version of Mission Central that was directed and managed by people feeling called to expand our outreach.

Our HUBs share Mission Central’s vision that hands-on mission can be the most powerful tool for sharing the Gospel by illustrating who we are called to be and by living out our faith in ways that are visible to others. Each HUB agrees to be ecumenical in its outreach and volunteer recruitment, agrees to work with persons of all ages and backgrounds and agrees to make local mission a first priority in their collection and distribution of materials.

Each HUB is free and encouraged to determine the scope of its individual ministry, based on the facility space they have, the number of volunteers available and the interests and service focus that is most important to that HUB location.

  • Most HUBs collect and assemble UMCOR Kits that are used for response to disaster and in support of mission work, locally, nationally and internationally
  • HUBs have volunteer work hours where people can come individually or in groups to complete the hands-on work that is needed
  • HUBs may seek out volunteers of all ages…from schools, senior centers, other churches, etc. and train them accordingly. This includes the collecting, sorting, packing and distribution of aid materials
  • Some HUBs collect items and materials used at Mission Central (for example: household items, toys, educational items – whatever is needed at the time) and facilitate shipping them to Mission Central for inclusion into larger shipments for use outside of the HUB’s immediate area
  • HUBs learn what is happening locally in their area and seek to find out how they can help fulfill basic human needs…many times in support of other ministries and outreach projects in their area
  • HUBs may also serve as a holding center for emergency relief supplies used for immediate distribution during times of natural disaster. At those times, HUBs will also act as receiving points for shipment from Mission Central for use in the HUB’s immediate area
  • Every HUB shares the common value of fellowship, service to God and service to others as their primary focus. How God calls each location to fulfill this focus is an exciting part of being a HUB!

We would love to partner with you in becoming a HUB. Please reach out to Hope at hharrison@missioncentral.org for additional details.
