Following the Boy Scouts’ decision, Indiana Bishop Mike Coyner issued a statement to reporters saying, “The decision by the Boy Scouts of America to welcome all boys as Scouts without regard to their own perceived sexual orientation brings the BSA into alignment with the Social Principles of our United Methodist Church, where we encourage all of our churches to be in ministry to and with all persons.

“I trust that our many congregations who sponsor Scout troops will continue to do so, because I believe Scouting ministries are an excellent way for us to be in ministry to boys and girls.” Less than week after Dayton United Methodist Church announced it was severing ties with Cub Scout Pack 3316, the Scouts found a new charter home. “The United Methodist Church is the second largest sponsor of the Boy Scouts with 363,876 Scouts in 10,868 units chartered by 6,700 churches,” said Larry Coppock director of scouting ministry for the denomination. Scouting remains one of the finest youth-serving agencies in America and it will continue to serve as a positive influence on boys and young men.” Since the 1996 creation of the General Commission on United Methodist Men, scouting ministry has expanded to include the BSA, Girl Scouts of America, 4-H, Camp Fire USA and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
