The ministry of men in the local church is defined as a core group of men, partnering with their pastor, to invite and initiate spiritual growth opportunities for all men of the church. Everyone has different gifts, graces and areas of interest. Therefore, opportunities for participation would include diverse ministries of the church, such as prayer groups, missions, Bible studies, retreats, workshops/seminars, small groups in the Wesleyan tradition, leading and participating on committees, teaching Sunday school classes, youth ministries, scouting, mentoring and assisting in leading worship service. The focus is not inward, concentrating only on those who attend a set meeting, but outward to all men, assisting them to engage in the process of spiritual growth.

Our mission is to support spiritual growth among men, helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others.  Our goal is to empower the ministry of Jesus Christ through men within the congregations of the UMC. Our pathway is a lifelong commitment to spiritual growth and maturity as Christ followers. Our spiritual formation is marked by spiritual reproduction, as our faith passes on in others.
