2019 Workshop

Men's Ministry: Developing Males into Men: Navigating Identity, Pornography, and Other Life Issues

3/8/2019 10:30 - 11:45 a.m. Room: A1

Presently, there is a big identity crisis among males regarding what a man is. There is no clear transition from childhood to manhood, and the culture defines men simplistically. As a result, many males are divorced from themselves, bored, passive, and violent. The Church has difficulty attracting men to Christ and involving them positively in this form of community. This foundational crisis has amazing repercussions that are seen daily in the therapist’s office. Marriages are breaking up as many males choose addiction, lack emotional intimacy, and often rely on the phrase, “I don’t know.” Children lack male role models as a cycle of rejection is passed down generationally. The Church and the Christian counselor can be a great solution to this cultural entropy if we can learn to involve men in ways that uniquely meet their needs, help them understand how God designed them, and encourage change. God wants godly men who honor Him.

In this seminar, we will look at the strengths men have to offer and how to mobilize them into becoming who God designed them to be. In doing so, men will learn to deal with the common challenges they experience daily and impact the world in positive ways. This seminar presents a model that will assist both counselors and church leaders to help the males they are working with develop true manhood.
