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 7: Church Growth – It’s All About the Pastor

Common story: First Church gets a new minister – Pastor Joe. He’s not a very good communicator. People start leaving. Within two years attendance has dropped by half. Giving is down by a third.

Church For Men 6: Why Men Aren’t Stepping Up

I attend a lot of men’s conferences. And the constant theme of these events is a call on men to live sacrificial lives. To step up and serve…to be heroes…to lay down their lives for their families, for their communities and for their churches. You hear the same call issued from pulpits. Preachers ask, “Why […]

Church For Men 5: Is Father Love Welcome in Church?

Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle and founder of the Acts 29 church-planting network, has endured withering criticism from both conservatives and liberals, Christians and non-Christians, even as his church has become one of the largest and most influential in the nation. Mars Hill has been compared to a cult. Left wing outlets such […]

Church for Men 4: Does A Lack Of Men Lead To Liberalism? (part 2)

Previously, I pointed out that as women have taken leadership positions in many of our mainline churches, men have silently removed themselves from the picture.  Interestingly enough, this has brought about a gradual move by many churches to liberalism – largely due to fundamental differences in the way men and women see the world. Men […]

Church for Men 3: Does A Lack Of Men Lead To Liberalism?

In the past five years, several mainline denominations have moved to the left – especially in regards to relationships, homosexuality and gender identity.  In 2009, the evangelical Lutheran church in America allowed same-sex marriages.  Last summer, The Presbyterian Church (USA) came within a handful of votes of soing the same, but backed away from the […]

Church For Men 2: Why Men Aren’t Buying Our Core Product, Part 2

Church used to be the place and the people with the mission to save your soul.  Today, it has largely become the place that saves your messed up family. As American Christianity rebrands itself to a more “Relationship Oriented Support Group”, they find themselves faced with a problem:  The Bible hardly devotes any attention to […]

McDonald’s core product – burgers – is changing dramatically in order to keep up with the times.  Believe it or not, instead of Starbucks, more people in England flock to the Golden Arches for their specialty coffee.
