And that sir, is a redundant sentence.
That, my friend, is a failed evangelical outreach.
Maybe it is, maybe it isn't. There have been many successful evangelical outreaches throughout the last century. Time will tell.
A few years ago, a white, middle-age evangelical pastor I know started "Hip Hop Church". I sh*t you not. I had to do a double take on the Man Church site and look at the ministers involved, because it sounded so... like him. Alas, my friend has nothing to do with Man Church. But without question, Man Church will meet the same speedy death as Hip Hop Church. And for that we can all praise Jesus.
For the analogy to hold, and for the prophecy to be true, the pastor behind "man-church" has to be as disconnected with the unchurched guys he's trying to reach as this "white, middle-aged evangelical" was with the whole hip-hop scene. Maybe he is, maybe he's not. Have you heard anything in this person's sermons to indicate how out-of-touch he was?
A very successful program right now is "Men's Fraternity", which seems to employ this exact same model. More people attend this particular church in Little Rock, AR, on a Wednesday early morning (6am), than Sunday mornings. All men. No singing. It has been copied and disseminated to hundreds of churches across the country, and through talks available for free in iTunes. Basic Christianity, but tailored (to the best of their ability of understanding) men's longings. Although I did not subscribe to every theological tenet shared in this program, I thought it quite strong. Hearing from those who had never set foot in a church, how this appealed to them, and taking the radical steps that they have been doing, signify that this is an outreach that has actually outreached.
If not for you, no prob. Welcome to the free market. Would you be interested in going to a Catholic liturgy that has been around since Christ instituted the church on Peter?
