Women’s and children’s ministries flourish in practically every U.S. congregation, but few churches are able to establish or maintain a vibrant men’s ministry. For example, there are 35,000 United Methodist congregations in the U.S. but only 6,000 offer a chapter of the United Methodist Men’s Organization.
Why? It is clear from the Gospels that Jesus mentored and coached His disciples. He had an especially close relationship with Peter, James, and John. Today come together to focus on the Word, to be challenged to bring their lives in line with Biblical precepts, to encourage and exhort one another, and to pray for one another.
