The heritage of United Methodist Men is a most glorious one.
The roots of Methodist Men run deep into the heart of Methodism
and the life and work of its founder, John Wesley.
From the Holy Club at Oxford University
to the societies and classes formed among Methodist Men
in the ranks of the British army and navy
to the Naval and Military Bible Society organized in 1779
by two men in Wesley’s West Street Chapel,
the impact of John Wesley’s work among men,
especially the men of the British army, was profound.
Organized brotherhood groups began to spring up
among the men of the army. Many of these men later chose
ordained ministry as their vocation.
Some of Wesley’s earliest preachers were former soldiers.
The contemporary purpose of United Methodist Men is
helping men to grow in Christ, so others can know Christ .
