United Methodist Men


The primary purpose of United Methodist Men is to declare the centrality of Christ in the lives of men and in all their relationships. Accordingly, Virginia Conference United Methodist Men works with the District organizations, in developing programs to meet the needs and interests of men of all ages.

Registration Now Open!: 2019 Spiritual Advance details   
Please make plans to join us for the 41st Annual Virginia Conference UMM Spiritual Advance at Baylake UMC, Virginia Beach on September 27-28, 2019.  Our featured speaker is the Rev. Dr. Kevin Watson, author of The Class Meeting and teacher at our 2019 Virginia Annual Conference.  Our guest speakers will be Greg Arnold, who serves on the deployed staff of the General Commission on Methodist Men, and Odell Horne, representing the SE Jurisdiction UMM and speaking on YoungER men’s ministry.  Our theme will be Transforming Grace. 

As we did last year, there will be special rates for Pastors, early birds, spouses, and, if you attended last year, BOGOs for first timers.  Also this year there will be a special Church Challenge targeted at churches having never attended the event or those currently with no formal UMM organization.  Open to all Churches, the challenge is to line up 12 men to come and receive both a discounted rate and free event themed shirts.  We’ve also added a box lunch option on Saturday so you may have more fellowship on site with your brothers in Christ.
