Men need discipleship. Jesus started it roughly 2,000 years ago and its just a relevant now as it was back then. Sadly, many in Christianity today do not have programs in place to disciple the men in their attendance. It is not that they do not have men but rather that they do not have specific resources for men to develop as men.
In his latest book Pastoring Men, Patrick Morley has written on the value of discipling men and the value that doing such can create. Recognizing the need for men to be discipled, Morley set out to find what men want, what works for them, and what doesn’t.
What he found is that when a church has a strong discipleship program for men, men step up and become great leaders, husbands, fathers, and examples. However, when it is not there, men seem disengaged and aloof.
This is a great read and a must for any church looking to disciple men.
