A free DVD to help churches develop or expand their Scouting ministries is available from UM Men or through the Boy Scouts of America. “United Methodist Scouting Ministries: Introductory Training for Church and Scouting Professionals and Volunteers” is a 75-minute video covering topics including how to transform a local church Scouting program into a ministry, youth and adult recognition and awards, policies and guidelines for protecting youth, and growing the program through bishop’s dinners. The DVD is based on the Scouting Ministry training manual, published by the National Association of UM Scouters. — UMNS
