Ministry To Men

As I peruse church web sites, I find an interesting phenomena. Almost without exception, there are ministries for children, youth, and women. Almost as often, there are ministries for senior adults. Yet, I find almost nothing for men. In almost half of the sites I find, the men's ministry portion of the site, if it exists at all, is "Under Construction" or seriously out of date. For years, we have bemoaned the lack of men in church. Perhaps it is because our actions say that we care more about children, youth, women and seniors than we do for men. Children, youth, and women followed Jesus, and certainly He ministered to them, but He spent the majority of His time in ministry with men.
