Resources for Units Chartered to United Methodist Churches

East Ohio Conference of The United Methodist Church


United Methodist Church & Scouting
Resources for Buckeye Council Leaders

The United Methodist Church is a long-standing partner with Buckeye Council in providing character development, leadership training, and mentorship to youth through scouting programs. Hundreds of youth, leaders, and their families have been positively impacted through this valued partnership.

In July of 2022, the United Methodist Church and National Council of the Boy Scouts of America announced that our partnership is changing. The UMC organization is encouraging local churches to change from a traditional Charter Agreement to a new model. Some of these options will require units to charter to a new organization. Units chartered to UMC churches must select a path forward and complete any necessary paperwork by 12/31/22. 

This guidebook provides resources and important information for how to proceed through this transition. It is critical for unit, council, and chartered organization leadership to be in close communication and collaboration throughout this process. We value our partnership with the United Methodist Church and look forward to working together to provide unique and impactful experiences for youth and families for many years to come.
