Growing a Gender Balanced Church

 

 

Did you know?

 

The church gender imbalance has massive implications for men, women and children.

A lot of Christians recognise the problem, but many don’t know what to do about it.

Let’s be practical: How can we restore the balance? There are organisations and resources out there, and if every church used them we'd probably solve the problem...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are about 500 men's groups across the UK that are affiliated with CVM. Some are part of a local church and others represent a group of churches or a whole town. See  www.cvm.org.uk/groups

For a short summary of the problems and solutions, see these Engage Symposium talks...

Christian Vision for Men       www.cvm.org.uk       UK and International

“CVM is a movement. It is made up of thousands of men who believe the message of Jesus is true, relevant and much needed in the UK today. CVM exists to serve the local church to engage with men in every village, town and city in this country. The movement is a faithful reaction to the significant number of men who have walked away from the Christian church during the last 30 years.

We are stacked full of resources, ideas and contacts...Be part of it:  www.cvm.org.uk/partner

Why men hate going to church

“David Murrow’s groundbreaking book reveals why men are the world’s largest unreached people group. With eye-opening research and a persuasive grasp on the facts, Murrow explains the problem and offers hope and encouragement to women, pastors, and men….Wonderful and insightful advice to help remedy this dire situation and recover the vital role of men in today’s church.”
