MENistry

this blog has been long overdue. I’ve been contemplating about writing a blog about how church could attract more men. In the Philippines, it would be common to see women dominating church attendance. If you go to a typical church, whether Catholic or Christian churches you would see a 70/30 ratio of women and men.

it seems like we are doing church that attracts more women than men. In Greenhills, we see an influx of our Muslim brothers go to the mosque during their worship services. You start to wonder why Islam attracts a lot of men in their movement.

One of my most favorite book on manhood is ” Wild at heart” by John Eldridge. The book teaches us that men are naturally WILD at HEART. But it seems the church is producing more MILD AT HEART men than ever.

Enter a typical church and the first thing that greets you is a pipe in music women would listen to. Then you see a big bouquet of flower on stage designed by the godly women in church, then you move on with worship where a woman leads worship and leads the congregation to sing songs that caters to the emotion of women.

We then hear preachings that tells us men to be MR. NICE GUY. It’s ok to be nice but God didn’t call us to be good boys – he called us to be MEN.

From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it. Matthew 11:12

A REAL MAN LEADS. A REAL MAN NEVER BACKS DOWN FROM ADVERSITIES.

We need to seriously think about how we could reach out to the MEN. If we don’t then we are in serious trouble….
