General Agency: General Commission on United Methodist Men
The General Commission on United Methodist Men (UMMen) involves men in a growing relationship to Jesus Christ and his church and provides resources and support for programs of evangelism, stewardship and the needs of men. United Methodist Men leads the church’s scouting ministry (Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Campfire), encourages participation in several programs serving at-risk youth and advocates for and supports men seeking to prevent domestic violence.
General agencies are the regularly established councils, boards, commissions, committees, or other units with ongoing responsibilities that have been constituted by the General Conference. They provide essential services and ministries beyond the scope of individual local congregations and annual conferences through services and ministries that are highly focused, flexible, and capable of rapid response.
