UM Men shares year-end numbers


The General Commission on United Methodist Men recently published a numerical summary of their work in 2019. The list covers a wide variety of ministry endeavors, including discipleship studies, scouting programs, missional work, and awards and recognition.
The UM Men’s mission is to support spiritual growth among men and to help men mature as disciples as they engage spiritual formation in others. There are four main areas of focus: leadership development, church renewal, ministry with the poor, and global health.
The numerical year in review is below. More information about UM Men can be found online at www.gcumm.org/news/um-men-2019-wrap-up.
