For Christian Leaders
The issues addressed by Engage affect everybody in your group/congregation/organisation in some way.
As a vital part of fulfilling the Great Commission, you’re in an ideal position to help change things for the better, but how can this be done?
Here’s a suggested 3 point plan.
1. Be informed
Meet with your leadership teams to share and discuss
Our resource book, 7 Reasons Your Church Needs More Men: How to lead a gender balanced church supporting healthy singleness, dating, marriage and youth
Meet with your leadership team to pray
For God to make the vision and aims of Engage a reality in the national church.
For wisdom to know what part you and your group/church/organisation are called to play.
To make singleness or marriage a genuine choice for all Christian women and men, through a church which is gender-balanced and teaches about healthy Christian singleness, dating and marriage.
To facilitate action amongst Christians that raises awareness of the church gender imbalance and addresses the resulting issues for men, women and children.
To connect men to Jesus and the church to men (see www.cvm.org.uk), creating a gender-balanced church.
To promote teaching for the whole church about healthy Christian singleness, dating, relationships, marriage and parenting.
3. Be involved
Create an action plan together, perhaps using the Engage Action Plan template example
Identify a lead person to oversee the implementation and review of the plan.
