UMM Look to the Future


By Fred Koenig

The new leadership team of the Missouri Conference United Methodist Men are anxious to go to work to help support a vital future for UMM groups across the state, but before they make plans, they are going to start by listening. 
The UMM are inviting men around the state to respond to an online survey of about 10 questions that takes less than five minutes. To take the survey, please go to
“Your candid responses are important to us,” said John Robinson, newly elected Conference president of UMM. “We hope to use this information we gather to more effectively serve the men of the Missouri Annual Conference and share our mission of helping men grow in Christ, so that others may know Christ.”
Robinson has served as district secretary/treasurer of the former Cape-Farmington District and as president of the Gateway Districts UMM. His home church is Caledonia UMC in Washington County, where his grandfather was a charter member of the UMM group about 70 years ago. 
Missouri has 84 charted UMM units, and 93 Every Man Shares programs.
