· Scouting, Ministry to Men, NACP

Nashville office closed


Following orders by Nashville Mayor Cooper, all Nashville nonessential businesses are to be closed. 

The staff of the General Commission on United Methodist Men will be working from their homes.

The bimonthly newsletter will be issued as scheduled on April 6, and the UM Men magazine will be available on June 15.

We will continue to be in prayer for you and your ministry during this difficult time.

While we will not ask staff members to travel at this time, we will find other ways to serve you as needs arise.
