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.

Cliff Fanning served as a big brother to 10-year old Kevass Harding after he stole candy from a candy machine.

That relationship through the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization helped Kevass develop spiritually and physically.

Today, the Rev. Dr. Kevass Harding is pastor of Dellrose UMC in Wichita, Kans., and he serves as Cliff’s pastor; as such, Harding performed Cliff’s wedding and baptized his children.

Harding now serves as a big brother to James, making him a third-generation little brother.
