Each year the GCUMM Board meets to review UMM activity from the current year and to set the course for the upcoming year. Board President Bishop James W. Swanson, Mississippi Episcopal leader opened the Annual Board meeting in Prayer and Praises! Board members include men and women from several nations and covering the U.S. Celebrations this year included the transition of Larry Coppock who retired from his role as Director of Scouting as he transitions into the Executive Director of Strength For Service. New Scouting Director Steven Scheid assumed responsibilities and shared his enthusiasm for the upcoming year. Our association with St. Andrews Society provided millions of fresh food meals last year and we seek to increase our support of this vital ministry. UMM continue to support the Upper Room Prayer line with donations and by hosting the prayer line in local churches.
