The Advocate’s newspaper ministry has helped connect the South Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church since 1837. Its mission is to connect United Methodists by independently reporting news, engaging readers and providing a forum for dialogue.
The Advocate helps give voice to churches and individuals in every corner of the state, with a commitment to excellent journalism—and making sure all viewpoints are heard in a Christian and prayerful manner. The Advocate is also intentional about ensuring every aspect of The United Methodist Church is represented within its page: local, district, conference, jurisdictional and global. Source
