Our Identity, Mission, and Purpose

Men growing in Christ,
So others may know Christ.

Uniting Ministry & Men also known as United Methodist (UM) Men are committed to the spiritual growth of men, who experience God’s transforming power in their lives, and pass on their faith to live and grow in others.


ADOX Mission Statement

United Methodist Men are very active serving the needs of their church and community. Mission projects range from small, which are handled by church fellowships to very large, utilizing resources across the entire conference and beyond. We serve as greeters, ushers, perform maintenance, man food pantries, clothing ministries, auto repair clinics, rebuilding churches, construction of welcome centers, pavilions and housing units. The United Methodist Men are humble servants of Christ.

ADOX Purpose

United Methodist Men shall be a creative supportive fellowship of men who seek to know Jesus Christ, to grow spiritually and to seek daily his will.


Our primary purpose is to declare the centrality of Christ in the lives of men and in all their relationships. The major concerns are:

  • To encourage and support the total mission of The United Methodist Church.
  • To engage in evangelism by sharing the fullness of the Gospel in its personal and social dimensions.
  • To clarify and speak to the identity and role of the man in contemporary society.
  • To seek commitment to discipleship.
  • To study and become familiar with The United Methodist Church, its organization, doctrines, and beliefs.
  • To cooperate with all units of United Methodist Men in obtaining these objectives through district, conference, jurisdiction, and church-wide goals.

Our mission and purpose is captured within our motto: “Men growing in Christ, so others may know Christ”.
