The Purpose and Objectives of The United Methodist Men
The United Methodist Men exist to declare the centrality of Christ in every man’s life. This men’s ministry leads to the spiritual growth of men and to effective discipleship. This purpose is served as men are called to model the servant leadership of Jesus Christ.
Individual and group strategies form the foundation of United Methodist Men’s ministry and include the following:
- Enhance evangelism, mission and spiritual life, as men become servant leaders.
- Advocate programs that train men within local churches to promote specific ministries including prayer, missions, stewardship, hunger relief, and civic/youth serving ministries.
- Forge pastoral partnerships by men committed to the effective support and service of clergy and local congregations.
- Assist men in their ever-changing relationships, roles and responsibilities in the family setting, workplace and society.
The United Methodist Men subscribe to these major strategies and personal objectives:
- To engage in daily Bible study and prayer.
- To be a witness to Christ’s way in daily work and in all personal contacts through words and action.
- To engage in Christian service.

The program includes a variety of subjects including community service organizations, Bible study, religious themes, and important community or societal topics which may suggest a Christian perspective or reaction.

The Bible study to be used will be “A Guide to Prayer” by Reuben Job and Norman Shawchuck. Everyone participates and the discussion will be based on one chapter from the Bible. There will also be a time of sharing and a prayer meeting using different kinds of prayer.
