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.

Rethink Church can help your local congregation meet its vital congregation goals to provide inviting & inspiring worship, engaged disciples in mission & outreach, small group ministries and strong children’s & youth ministry. Here are some ways we are helping this Advent.

A Different Kind of Christmas is a program focused from the inside out – assisting local churches with resources to grow in discipleship, while connecting people uninvolved in church with opportunities to engage.

Three simple steps will get you started.

1.       Go to and download the free sermon series by Rev. Mike Slaughter to understand the theological focus of the program. (You’ll find links to some great additional resources.)
2.       Update the new section “A Different Kind of Christmas” in Find-A-Church so others can engage your ministries.
3.       Prepare church leaders to welcome guests through Welcoming Training:
This Christmas can be different, but it’s got to start by making different choices earlier rather than later. Get involved now and Reclaim Christmas!
