Some of the missions taking place through the Mountain Sky Conference
Missions (Noun): The calling or vocation of an individual to go into the world and spread the Good News.
Advocate (noun): A person who pleads for or on behalf of another; intercessor.
The Mountain Sky Conference is committed to being in ministry with people across the United Methodist connection and around the globe. One way in which the conference does this is by advocating with and on behalf of a number of different groups found both inside and outside of the conference borders. Another way is by engaging in missions with those in our world who are in need.

The Blackfeet United Methodist Parish (BUMP)
The people who live on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation located just east of Glacier National Park in Montana. The majority of the present day residents living on the Blackfeet Reservation are bloodline descendants of the original indigenous inhabitants of this area.
Since 1882 the United Methodist Church has had a continuous presence on the Blackfeet Reservation. The participants in the ministry and programs of the Blackfeet United Methodist Parish reflect the cultural and racial diversity of the larger community. Most of the parish members are connected to the Blackfeet Tribe by blood, marriage or occupation and are the bearers of much wisdom which comes from generations of the struggle for life with dignity.
The former Yellowstone Conference (YAC) has had a relationship with the East Angola Conference of The United Methodist Church since 2003. Four Volunteers-in-Mission teams have visited East Angola since 2003, to help rebuild their churches and communities, to learn how best to be in partnership and to get to know one another.
