AtAt Annual Conference 2013, Bishop Marcus Matthews challenged every church to plant a seed. The challenge for the UMM is to get every church in our conference to charter as a United Methodist Men Unit. Thus, whether you have officers and scheduled meetings or you are just one man in the church, a seed is sown. This seed can bring new life to your church as you reach out to community to invite other men and their families to worship. This is a lofty challenge as it is estimated that fewer than 10% of churches in the America are able to sustain a vibrant men's ministry. That on any given Sunday there are 13 million more adult women than men in America's churches or on average a congregation is made of 61% women and 39% men.
So reaching men is important because, when a man comes to Christ, his family follows him:
- more than 90% of the time
- less than 30% for women, and
- less that 20% for a child or youth
The church is best when it balances the images of God - the entire family.
Opportunities abound for men in ministry in our conference, districts, and local churches. Consider joining us on Dec 6-7 for a 1 1/2 seminar lead by Jim Boesch from the General Commission of United Methodist Men. This leadership training could be the single most effective seminar that laity (men and women) and clergy, of your church will attend this decade. The seminar is based on the book, by Ken Blanchard and Phil Hodges. Some of you may remember, Dr. Blanchard for his bestselling book for more than twenty years, The One-Minute Manager, sold to millions of managers in Fortune 500 companies and small business nationwide. Then one-day in his early sixties he became a follower of Jesus Christ and started a new company that inspired his book, Lead Like Jesus. In August, 2013, we had the opportunity to participate in a 1 1/2 day Lead Like Jesus seminar lead by Jim Boesch and Ken Blanchard. So many of us already have first-hand knowledge of how powerful this seminar is. PLEASE TRUST US and REGISTER NOW! The registration fee is $32.64, which includes the course book, the work book, lunch and snacks.
