Vision

The ministry of our United Methodist Men 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 the process of spiritual growth.

Mission

Our mission is to support spiritual growth among men, helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others.

Goal

Our goal is to empower the ministry of Jesus Christ through men within the congregations of the United Methodist Church.

Pathway

Our pathway is a lifelong commitment to spiritual growth to maturity as Christ followers.  Our spiritual formation is marked by spiritual reproduction, as our faith passes on in others.

Why is men’s ministry important?

Men lead others best by modeling Jesus Christ in thoughts, words and deeds.

Spiritual maturity is signified in spiritual reproduction, as the faith of mature disciples passes on in others.

Men growing in Christ become effective spiritual leader in their homes and congregations, working as partners with their spouses and congregational leaders-both lay and clergy.

Spiritually growing men help congregations to become vital and alive.

Everything desired from and through men comes as a result of men growing spiritually and maturing as disciples: family blessings, stewardship, service, outreach, prayer, spiritual leadership, lifestyle evangelism, and faithful obedience. Men are foundational to the life and health of the church.

When a man lives daily in surrendered faith, God is honored and many lives are blessed. Transformed hearts are forged only within Christ-centered lives-nothing less is our acceptable offering; nothing less truly reveals Christ.

Activities in our Church

The United Methodist Men of the First United Methodist Church are active in our local church.  We support the church scouting program.  We support the youth with a scholarship to a graduating High School senior each May.

If you would like to get involved or just be added to our email list, email Ron Schneider.

 

 


 

Events:

Rio Texas Conference United Methodist Men's Annual Meeting at Mt. Wesley on Saturday, March 12, 2016 from 10 am - 3 pm

To all

The Rio Texas Conference United Methodist Men's Annual Meeting will take place on Saturday, March
12, 2016 at the Mount Wesley Conference Center (610 Methodist Encampment Road, Kerrville, Texas
78028) from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm.  The registration fee is $25.00 and includes a steak dinner

Checks for the $25.00 fee should be made to:
Rio Texas Conference - United Methodist Men

If you would like to attend this meeting, please contact Cary Boddeker (Vice President / Prayer
Advocate [Rio Texas Conference UMM?]) or Robert Tripson (President, Crossroads District United
Methodist Men) to let them know that you are coming.  (Cary told me they need to know how many
guys are coming so that the steaks can thaw before being cooked).

Contact info for Cary Boddeker:
512-261-9580

Contact info for Robert Tripson:
361-652-3994 (mobile)
361-573-6979 (home)

If several of you wish to go, it may be advantageous to carpool.

The tentative agenda that I know about is this:

Reverend Ryan Barnett, Senior Pastor of Kerrville First United Methodist Church, will speak about
the newly formed Rio Texas Conference in general, and its connection to the Rio Texas Conference
United Methodist Men (UMM).

According to an email from Cary Boddeker, there is a need to elect a Rio Texas President of the
Rio Texas Conference UMM.  The Nominating Committee consists of the District Presidents who
need to come up with their recommendation.  Jim Callaway has stated that he will not accept
another term as President but will still serve on the Board.

There will also be a one hour class by Emet Huntsman on the Entire Bible in just one hour.

There will also be a business meeting, as well as time set aside for a "meet and greet", so that
all attendees can get acquainted.

Did I mention there is a steak dinner?

If you can make it, this is a great opportunity to see the workings of the UMM at the Conference
level.  Plus there is a chance to meet and fellowship with men from other UMM units.

If you have questions feel free to call me.

Sincerely,
Ron Schneider
President, United Methodist Men
FUMC Lockhart
