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.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.––UM Men continue to be the foundation upon which the Upper Room Living Prayer Center is built.

In 2013, UM Men contributed $25,688 and nearly $10,000 has already been contributed in 2014. Alabama-West Florida Annual Conference contributed the highest amount with a total of $3,025.

The funds enabled a total of 246,540 prayers to be answered by volunteers, including 148 prayer line groups and 242 covenant groups from around the world.

“Your partnership and commitment is invaluable,” Migdiel Pérez, manager of the prayer center, told prayer advocates and conference presidents. “Certainly we highly value the financial contribution from UM Men, but we are equally thankful for the man-hours given by many groups across the UMM connection on behalf of our ministry.”

Pérez expressed special appreciation to the UM Men prayer advocates for the “great work that they do in promoting, recruiting volunteers and supporting this ministry.”
