But I also get a lot of messages like this one:
Dave, you are dead on in your conclusions about men in church.
I sat way in the back at our service Sunday. I sat with my next-door neighbor who came to Christ a couple years ago.
The men around me —except for me and another guy two rows back — were just standing there with their hands in their pockets while the worship leader sang in near falsetto. He is a terrific guy, but in my section he was singing with the women.
This is not a complaint but it does disturb me. As the men’s pastor I hear all the time how unengaged the men are. My answer: THEN ENGAGE THEM!
So how about you? Are you engaged at church – particularly during the music? What is your church doing to engage the men?
And here’s what I really want to know: are things better or worse for the men in your congregation than they were 2 years ago? Please add your comments below.
