Why Man Church?

  • This Sunday almost 25 percent of married, churchgoing women will worship without their husbands.
  • The typical U.S. Congregation draws an adult crowd that’s 61% female and 39% male. This gender gap shows up in all age categories.
  • Over 70 percent of the boys who are being raised in church will abandon it during their teens and twenties. Many of these boys will never return.
  • More than 90 percent of American men believe in God, and five out of six call themselves Christians. But only two out of six attend church on a given Sunday. The average man accepts the reality of Jesus Christ, but fails to see any value in going to church.
  • Fewer than 10% of U.S. churches are able to establish or maintain a vibrant men’s ministry.
  • Churches overseas report gender gaps of up to 9 women for every adult man in attendance.
  • Christian universities are becoming convents. The typical Christian college in the U.S. enrolls almost 2 women for every 1 man.

The Church Needs Dudes 
“Most churches are built to cater to 40 something year old women and their children and the guys are no where to be found.”

“Most churches don’t know what to do with entrepreneurial type leaders. Most of the time they think they’re trouble makers. They think they’re critical. The question is, are they critical or are they leaders?”
