Under Mission Education and Development, the Eastbrook Mission Barn places the following work areas:

  • Development of Satellite depots throughout parts of the Eastern Ohio and Western Upper New York Conference, as well as western WVA.
    • The goal with these depots is to increase participation in UMCOR by locating collection and work sites closer to local churches. There are currently 4 Satellite depots:
      • Park UMC: North East PA
      • Connellsville Area Ministries
      • Harris Hill UMC (Buffalo NY Area)
      • Smithport UMC, Glen Campbell, PA (Indiana District)
  • The encouragement and facilitation of the development of modular ramp building projects in local churches, clusters, and districts.
    • EMB has facilitated the development of 3 programs:
      • Indiana District
      • Washington District (Ramps of Hope)
      • Seneca (Franklin District) area United Methodist Churches
  • Providing ramp modules and support for Fred Watts’ ramp building program in Pittsburgh.
  • Speaking at local churches, United Methodist Women groups, and district events.
    • Explain and promote UMCOR, ramp projects, and the ministry of EMB
    • Work with Mission U and other WPA conference groups to train and supervise volunteers and explain the ministry of UMCOR
    • Work with local ecumenical groups (teams) to provide hands-on ministry in Lawrence, Butler, Beaver, and Mercer Counties
