Who We Are

Southside Men is the discipleship ministry for men at Southside UMC. Our philosophy of men's ministry is pretty simple. We believe men are transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ from the inside out and, in turn, that permeates every sphere of life.

Southside's Churchwide Study

Online Introduction to Southside's New Discipleship Emphases

SUMC is doing a church-wide study where we will share weekly scripture, a key idea, discussion points for our community, next steps and prayer guides. It is our hope that this study helps our church community come together and focus on the future God has in store for SUMC.

Spiritual Goals for 2021


Here we are at the beginning of a brand new year. There is so much opportunity to grow in our relationship with Christ together...


  • To know him better
  • To love him more
  • to become more like him, and
  • to follow him more faithfully in every sphere of our lives.


That's very exciting!! What are some ways  you are going to intentionally pursue such growth in your life this year? How can I help you? Think and pray about it and let's get together and talk about it. 


Let's make this a great year of growing in Christ together.


I hope to hear from you. Email me and let's get together!


Your Brother in Christ,
