UMM’s Mission: To Help Men Grow In Christ, So Others May Know Christ. UMM is working to implement a new model and vision of men’s ministry. We believe that the result will be men involved in all four areas of focus which will reach the world for Christ.
Four Areas Of Focus:
- Training UM Men leaders for ministry of Jesus Christ through Advanced Lay Speaking Course.
- Training Men’s and Scouting Ministry Specialists to serve in every conference by 2012.
- Training and equipping leaders in Central Conferences in scouting and men’s ministry with on-site visits and on-line courses.
- Training youth to be effective, caring leaders in church and community through ministries with Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Campfire and 4-H.
- Awakening and building new spiritually as a means to revive congregations.
- Training clergy and lay leaders in effective discipleship of men.
- Encouraging and equipping men to serve their pastors and congregations as ministry partners.
- Assisting UMC leaders beyond the USA with relevant training and resources
