David Murrow: Mild At Heart


Leadership Challenge: Recasting The Church

“Stop sending signals that church is for women,” are the defining words of Murrow’s article. Perhaps it is better said, “Start sending signals that church is for men.” Using either phrase, current church leaders have the challenge of “Turning the Ship” of church purpose and culture. The alternative is to watch the membership in the pews become gray, feminine and few.

A man-friendly church need not, should not, must not, become woman-hostile. God’s Grace is too deep, too rich and too powerful for that. Will we seek the solutions in God’s Wisdom? Will we draw the courage and strength for changes from His Power?


Strong At Heart

When the Church relearns to fish and disciple men, our churches will be transformed. Murrow offers suggestions on how a pastor can begin giving a church masculine appeal. Can we pack the pews with brethren once again? Murrow believes it can be done.

David Murrow’s article is a challenge for the American Church. Men are the spiritual (and literal) muscle of Christianity. Are we willing to pump spiritual testosterone into the veins of the Church and bulk up?
