About the United Methodist Men


Helping men to grow in Christ so others can know Christ.

United Methodist Men shall be a creative, supportive fellowship of men who seek to know Jesus Christ, to grow spirituality and to seek daily his will.

Ministry to Men

The General Commission on Men exists to declare the centrality of Christ in every man's life. Men's ministry leads to the spiritual growth of men and effective discipleship. This purpose is served as men are called to model the servant leadership of Jesus Christ.


The General Commission provides resources and support for civic youth-serving agencies and scouting ministries.
