Christian bible teaching about how to bring the church back to today's men and boys. How men and boys need to follow Jesus Christ, read scripture, and become a mature Christian, participate in discipleship, and learn then teach the truth about God.

ABOUT THE HOST

CHURCH FOR MEN
Churches from Moscow to Melbourne to Minneapolis asking: Where are the men? Women comprise more than 60% of the adults in the typical worship service in America. Some overseas congregations report ten women for every man in attendance. Volunteer ranks are heavily female.
No other religion suffers the enormous gender gaps that plague Christianity.

It’s not just attendance where men trail women. Men are less likely to lead, volunteer and give in the church. They pray less, share their faith less and read the Bible less. The men who do go to church seem passive and bored. It’s often impossible to get churchgoing men to do anything other than attend services. The church’s gender gap is often invisible because the top tier of church leadership is still heavily male. Over 90% of Protestant pastors and 100% of Catholic priests are male. But Leon Podles put it best: “The modern church is an army of women led by a few male generals.”

Men need the church – but more important, the church needs men. The presence of enthusiastic men is one of the surest predictors of church health, growth, giving and expansion. Meanwhile, a man shortage is a sure sign of congregational paralysis and decline.

THE PODCAST
Church for Men is a podcast dedicated to helping the local church reach more men and boys. We do this through a myriad of different avenues and strategies. Additionally, we are developing an exciting new men’s ministry regime called Men’s League, which is built on a model we call Three Journeys Discipleship.

At Church for Men, our focus is not male dominance, but male resurgence. Our mission is not to call men back to the church – we call the church back to men. As we read in the Gospel of Matthew: “And He said to them, ‘Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.’”(Matthew 4:19)

PODCASTER BIO
David Murrow founded Church for Men in 2005. Murrow is not a pastor, professor or theologian. He’s just a guy in the pews who noticed a disturbing trend: churches are losing their men and boys. So he wrote a book titled Why Men Hate Going to Church, which became an instant Christian bestseller, with more than 100,000 copies in print. His efforts have spawned articles in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and the Chicago Tribune, to name a few. David Murrow has walked four distinct career paths: television producer, book author, professional speaker and government spokesperson. Murrow has a degree in Anthropology from Baylor University. He’s married with three children and three grandsons.

Church for Men 23: Is Self-Esteem Wrecking Church Attendance?

The modern self-esteem movement is celebrating its 50th birthday. In 1965, sociologist Morris Rosenberg invented “The Self-Esteem Scale” — the first academic tool that assessed a person’s view of himself. In 1969 Psychologist Nathaniel Branden took that data and released “The Psychology of Self-Esteem,” which became the bible of the modern self-esteem movement. Over the next […]

Church for Men 22: Why Churches Are Stage-Driven

When Christians gather, they spend the bulk of their time watching stage presentations. Worship services. Seminars. Classes. Conferences. Workshops. All the while, they interact with someone standing in front of them – either speaking or leading them in song. The early Christians did meet to hear sermons and teaching. But their focus seemed to be outside […]

Church for Men 19: Can A Man Love God but Hate Going to Church?

I’m noticing a growing trend – Christian men quietly admitting they do not like going to church. More than half of the committed Christian men I talk to, when asked, will tell me they do not like churchgoing. They come to me after I speak. They admit their dissatisfaction in hushed tones. They love God […]
