Where Have All the Men Gone



For the past six months I've been reading a variety of books and studies dealing with the absence of men in churches. The statistics are staggering. Many of you know women whose husbands and boyfriends refuse to come to church, and women complain that many man in the church are 'soft' men.

Where have all the 'manly' men gone? Where are the risk taking, adventurous, dangerous men?

Over the next month I'll be writing about this, but I'd love to hear your input. Why do you think men have left the building? What can we do to attract more men? And women, I'd especially like to hear your views on this.

Are the men in church soft? Is the church too feminine?

I'll give you my thoughts, of course, but first I'd love to hear yours...
