Church Male Population an Endangered Species?

Click on the title to read a very sobering and intriguing article that everyone interested in church growth should read. The author makes a very strong case that the lack of males and male involvement in church congregations, particularly those in the age range of 18-24, has a profound effect on their ability to become strong role models and family men. I came of age during the 70's Feminist Movement so I can see how easily men became forgotten. We just naturally assumed that they had it so good for so long that now it was our turn. But in forgetting, we lost touch with how to grow and develop strong, family oriented males. As I look at the state of the family in our society today I see we are paying a terrible price. The question is how to turn it around before it is too late? Or is it too late already?
