Four Commitments of United Methodist Men

  • A few men in every church to support and encourage pastors through prayer and service.
  • Call and equip all men to have at least one godly friend with whom they are accountable as disciples of Christ, and to encourage men to build friendships across racial and cultural lines.
  • Declare young people our new mission field and call and equip adults to lead young people into authentic Christian adulthood.
