Promise Keepers Decline And What Churches Can Learn

  1. I too was very involved with PK and men’s ministry in the heyday. You hit the nail on the head. Churches failed to support and disciple the men after the event. I see other fishing ministries that are event only groups that fail to follow up with the members and new converts. Discipleship is key to helping guys become fruitful warriors for Christ.

  2. As I still find failure as a man pursuing Christ, and as one who was helped tremendously during the Promise Keepers movement, I searched the internet today and found myself here. An old yet timely posting. Five years old yet fresh. The issue is simply this. It is all about continuing relationship. Are we continually connecting in a real way with others in the pursuit of Christ? Do we slide back into a comfortable place. I still do vegetate on some sports event on the tube. And I walked this morning sad about the remaining holes in my life. Self-pity? No the reality of loneliness in the truth that only Jesus Christ Himself can fill those holes. He alone can satisfy. We are men but we find and must find, as the apostle John, the place where we lie on His breast, feel our Father’s heartbeat. And we must experience that Christ is the lover of our souls, and we are part of a bride being prepared for a wedding feast with our bridegroom. Along the way we disciple one another and grow into a dwelling of God in the Spirit. No other pursuit is worthy of our lives. The Lamb of God alone is worthy of us.
