Mission:  United Methodist Committee on Scouting

cropped-T2143-6-10-Scouts-in-Line.jpgThe mission of the North Georgia Conference’s United Methodist Committee on Scouting (UMCOS) is to promote Duty-to-God to the youth of North Georgia through the various youth organizations that The United Methodist Church supports. This includes the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Amachi (Big Brothers/ Big Sisters) and Camp Fire organizations throughout the Conference.

We provide support in various ways including helping congregations start a pack or troop, coaching congregation’s Scout Coordinators on ways to grow their programs and training scout leaders on how to build “Duty to God” into their programs. This committee is a resource for the Scout Leaders, Lay Leaders, Ministers and even parents of scouts in the Conference.
