Our Half-Day Seminar
The fastest growing churches in North America have something in common – they’re brimming with enthusiastic men. Studies have shown that male involvement is one of the surest predictors of church growth and health.
But there’s a problem. The average church in North America draws an adult crowd that’s just 39% male. And most of the men who do attend services seem passive and bored. Faithful men are becoming rarer in church today – while godly women are as common as boots at a rodeo.
As men have left the church, attendance and participation have declined. Eighty-five percent of America’s congregations are not growing. The church is older and more female than it’s ever been.
Ninety percent of U.S. men believe in God. Five out of six call themselves Christians. But only one out of six men can be found in church on a given weekend. Men love God – but just aren’t interested in church.
How do you change things at your church? Attend our dynamic half-day seminar: Grow Your Men — and Your Church Will Grow. You’ll learn:
- Why men avoid church
- How to teach for the male brain
- Why men’s ministry isn’t the answer
- How to create a boy-friendly Sunday school
- How to turn pew sitters into disciples
- How to be masculine – but not macho
- Why churches feminize over time
- Why men flock to megachurches
- How to keep teen boys in youth group
- How to balance masculine & feminine
- How to lead men in worship
- What young men want in a church
Your instructor: David Murrow, author of the bestselling book Why Men Hate Going to Church
Murrow is an entertaining speaker who handles his taboo subject with humor and grace. His fast-paced persentation will have you laughing and squirming as you discover the many ways church drives men crazy.
David’s books have sold more than 150,000 copies in a dozen languages. He’s been interviewed on PBS, NBC Nightly News and Fox News Channel to name a few.
Would your church like to be more effective in its outreach to men and boys?
Church for men is now offering church consulting. We’ll train your staff and your laity how to understand men and boys – and how to meet their deepest needs.
We train with a light hand. Our goal is not to point out deficiencies, but to encourage your staff in the right direction. Our training is practical, hands on and fun!
Your weeklong training includes a men’s rally, group and individual training with staff members, churchwide training for the laity and the option to have the trainer speak in your worship services.
Training/certification typically goes like this:
- Friday morning – David Murrow arrives
- Friday night – Men’s rally at the church. 40 minute presentation: Why Men Hate Going to Church. Tell the men that ____________ church is going to go after guys! Invite them to next week’s church wide training session.
- Saturday – Murrow meets with key staff.
- Sunday – Murrow can either 1) observe or 2) speak at your services. Your option.
- Monday – Training sessions all day with staff. Two hour lunch break to let them catch up on work, calls, etc.
- Tuesday – One-on-one sessions with trainer. Murrow also attends youth group, committee meetings, etc. Whatever you want him to do.
- Wednesday night – Churchwide training for the laity. Very practical. Much gentler. We focus on the positive: how to pray with men, how to talk to men about the gospel, and how to engage boys.
- Thursday morning – Training complete.
Within 14 days your church will receive a strategy report offering encouragement and action steps.
