Men in Mission
Mission Opportunities for Men
One of the most powerful tools available to a UMMen’s local fellowship for spiritual growth and witness is through active mission service.
UMMen have a long history of stepping up to help our neighbors in recovery from floods, fires and storms. For the latest information on breaking disasters and recovery efforts, go to www.umcor.org
Hurricane response: To find ways to respond to the Florida, Louisiana and Texas Hurricanes here is a list of the Disaster Response Coordinators for each conference of the SEJ. They will connect you. Trained ERT teams are needed now in Texas and Louisiana. More at txcumc.org
Local congregations not only host, but share in witnessing the love of Jesus with young men as they are grow into mature and responsible adults. UMM have historically been tasked with the growth and development of the Scout Troop at your church. Want to know more? Contact the SEJUMM Scouting Coordinator Barry Herrin
One of the most rewarding experiences a men’s group can have is to participate as a host site for the Upper Room Living Prayer Center. The ministry of praying with and for those in need of prayer is an amazing opportunity for spiritual growth and witness.

SOCIETY OF ST. ANDREW
The Society of St. Andrew was formed in 1979 as an intentional community of two families called to life and ministry together in Christ. It has grown into an ecumenical, non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to leading others into lives of Christian community and service with an emphasis of gleaning and food distribution. UMMen have been a long-time resource in this work. Learn more.
