The United Methodist Men of the Baltimore-Washington Conference are challenging every church (Men and Women) in our conference to be represented at our Annual Virtual UM Men Gathering on Sat., Oct 21, 2023, from 9 am to 12:00 pm.

Theme: Raising Mighty Men 
Nurturing Godly Sons for a Purposeful Future for Christ



Learn how to inaugurate, energize or grow your men's ministry to widen the circle reaching your community through prayer, scripture, leadership training, mentoring, accountability, mission, and fellowship. Build 10,000 Spiritual Fathers. Learn about the all new United Men's Ministries from the General Commission for United Methodist Men.  

 Don't worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God. 7 Then, because you belong to Christ Jesus, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. And this peace will control the way you think and feel.  Philippians 4:6-7 (CEV)
