NASHVILLE,Tenn.--Conference presidents of United Methodist Men take time out from their March 2-5 training event to package 800 pounds of rice and 500 pounds of beans for children of Tuscalum Elementary School. Seven hundred and thirty eight students from 30 nations gather in temporary buildings and a structure built to house 300 students. They speak a variety of languages but they all come from families who will find it difficult to put food on the table the week when the children will not receive free lunches at the school.
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:
Engaging in Ministry with the Poor...
- Training UMM leaders to become advocates and friends of the poor, and eliminate the effects of poverty and racism.
- Expanding US hunger relief efforts through the Society of Saint Andrew.
- Supporting children of incarcerated parents through Amachi.
- Expanding global hunger relief through Stop Hunger Now.
