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. United Methodist Men are responding to the four areas of focus in the following ways:

New places for new people and renewal of existing congregations…

  • 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.

ADRIAN, Mich. -- Lee Donley, president of the North Central Jurisdiction UM Men, received the Harry Denman Evangelism Award from the Detroit Annual Conference, meeting last May in Adrian.

“Lee has a heart bigger than his chest,” said the Rev. Doug McMunn, pastor of Oxford UMC where Donley teaches a 5th grade class, organizes potato drops and leads efforts to repair homes.

Prior to the meeting, McMunn asked Donley if he planned to attend annual conference. “I hadn’t planned to,” he replied. McMunn finally had to tell Donley why he should attend.
In accepting the award, Donley said his goal is to “help men grow in Christ so others may know Christ.”
