The Wesley Brotherhood – October/November 2019 Edition


Welcome to the First Edition of the new UMM Florida newsletter, “The Wesley Brotherhood.” This newsletter is for the benefit of all men in the Florida Conference United Methodist Church and men throughout Florida seeking a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. We will be sharing upcoming events, stories about what’s happening with men’s ministry in local churches, and stories about how and where God is working through His men in Florida.

United Methodist Men Give Day 2019

The General Commission on United Methodist Men and UMM Florida is “casting nets in new waters.” Our biggest challenge however, is that the funding needed for both men’s and scouting exceeds our income projections. Give Day is an opportunity for new and current supporters to have an impact on changing the lives of men and youth around the world. We need you to help us by supporting the ministry with a donation of $10 or more and to invite others to support the significant work of this ministry.

Give online now!


UMM Florida is committed to providing the men of Florida and the Florida Conference United Methodist Church with connections to some outstanding partner resources and access to our upcoming events and access to the upcoming events that we believe will have an impact on your life and the lives of other men.
