UNITED METHODIST MEN exists to declare the centrality of Christ in every man's life. Its ministry leads to the spiritual growth of men and effective discipleship. We are called to model the leadership of Jesus Christ.

PURPOSE
The local men's organization shall provide a dedicated ministry for building men spiritually and involving men in the total ministry of the church. SHARP Men shall be a creative, supportive fellowship of men who seek to know Jesus Christ, to grow spiritually and to seek daily his will.
 
SHARP Men’s major concerns are...
  • to encourage knowledge of and support for the total mission of the United Methodist Church
  • to encourage 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 and
  • to cooperate with all units of the United Methodist Men in obtaining these objectives through district, conference, jurisdiction, and church-wide goals.
Membership is open to any man who indicates his desire to belong and to participate in the ministry of the church. Individual and group strategies forming the foundation of the United Methodist Men ministry are found in the "Book of Discipline". Sharp Men are designed to be inclusive! Men of varying ages and interests are needed to make our organization complete.
