Each of us knows men that struggle with church. It's not that they don't love the Lord or even that they don't like their church. They just don't seem to fit in well. While others seem to eat up attention, they avoid it like the plague. While others seem to have all the answers, they struggle to understand the Bible. These are men that love God but aren't "good" at a lot of church activities.
Four years ago, we started a Men's Retreat designed to reach these men. We still preach the Word. But we do it in a way that engages them where they are. We go four wheeling. We shoot skeet. We barbecue. We allow them to be men and learn about God at the same time.
Sound novel? It's not. Jesus did it 2,000 years ago when He said to Peter, "Follow me and I will make you a fisher of men." He related to Peter's life in order to influence Him for the Kingdom.
