United Methodist Men’s report to 2019 Annual Conference
The Eastern Pennsylvania Conference United Methodist Men would like to acknowledge all the support it gets from the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference, our Bishop, our District Superintendents our executive director of connectional ministries, other cabinet members, and our conference lay leader. We also had quite a bit of help from people on the district and local church level. With the help of all we st we were able to have some success in reaching out and starting new ministries. We will continue to reach out to local churches in order to help them to initiate and strengthen men’s ministries.
The mission of the Eastern Pa Conference Organization Of United Methodist Men is to guide men to greater fellowship and discipleship through organizational assistance, and activities and ministries that encompass the individual districts and the entire conference.
The Eastern PA Conference UM Men reelected officers, heard reports and discussed ministry opportunities at their annual meeting Oct. 29, 2017, at Evansburg UMC.

There is no secret formula for organizing a successful United Methodist Men’s Unit. First ask your pastor for support. Success is more likely with his or her enthusiastic support. Arrange a time for a meeting, include your pastor and invite several men from your congregation. Also invite your district United Methodist Men’s president. At this meeting, make plans for the steps you will follow to form a United Methodist Men’s unit. Learn more
