A few weeks ago, I attended the National Men's Ministries Leadership Conference for the Assemblies of God. During this conference a pastor from Idaho spoke on church growth. He discussed the need to reach men in your community as the greatest opportunity for growth in churches today. He has seen consistent growth by reaching men in his community.
One of the reasons for his growth has come because they are dealing with real issues. Men are coming to hear how his church is addressing issues like pornography, with hope and with restoration.
Message to pastors and church leaders, people are ready to address issues that are holding us back from true freedom. We all have mess in our lives and everyone is ready to be real. We are all tired of wearing masks in front of people who are struggling with similar issues. Let’s be real and create an environment where church is a place for healing and restoration.
