Why have a UM Men charter? 

A charter subscription connects the local church with the world-wide ministries of the General Commission on United Methodist Men. A charter subscription enables local churches to access resources relevant to men’s and scouting ministries. Additionally, the charter subscription aids in the development of new resources and training in the United States and around the world.
