The South Carolina Conference of United Methodist Men is committed to strengthening men for the ministry.  The organization is a supportive fellowship of men who seek to know Jesus Christ, to grow spiritually and to seek His will daily.  Our primary purpose is to declare the centrality of Christ in the lives of men and in all of their relationships.

Our Goals:

  • To encourage knowledge and support for the total mission of the United Methodist Church
  • To enhance evangelism, mission and spiritual life, as men become servant leaders
  • To advocate programs that train men within the local churches to promote specific ministries including prayer, missions, stewardship, hunger relief and civic/youth serving ministries
  • To forge pastoral partnerships by men committed to the effective support and service of clergy and local congregations
  • To assist men in their ever-changing relationships, roles and responsibilities in the family setting, workplace and society
  • To seek commitment to discipleship
  • To encourage daily Bible Study and prayer
  • “To be doers of the Word and not hearers only” (James 1:22)
  • South Carolina United Methodist Men
