“Is there a future for men and the church? Jay Crouse, an expert in the field, emphatically says YES! A how-to rejuvenate your own church by understanding men and understanding faith, Jay's book is a must read for any man, any Christian leader (lay or ordained) and basically anyone who wants the Church to grow larger and deeper by tapping into the church's secret weapon: men! Perfect for a book group or small group study, "Men and the Church: Is There a Future?" delivers what the church needs to hear from one who's approach is a proven success. Men, stop beating your chests and get this book!”

The Very Rev. Fredrick A. Robinson

Rector, Church of the Redeemer


“Jay Crouse's Men and the Church: Is There a Future? is based on the author's first-hand knowledge of building ministries to and with men over a period of over two decades. No mere book of theories, Men and the Church is a description of what men's ministry looks like when it works. There is a future for men in the Church, but that ministry doesn't just happen. It takes planning and tenacity and willingness not to give up, but the rewards are great, for ultimately men need what only faith in Jesus Christ can give. Men and the Church: Is There a Future gives an excellent strategy for reaching men in and through the local congregation.”

David Hunihan

Sales Director, Neal Communities


“I have been blessed not only to read this book, but to have been a product of the principles that Jay puts forth to help churches build a thriving ministry to men. This book not only exposes the issues facing men and the Church in today’s society, but it offers practical solutions with real life testimonies on how to engage those men. This book should be a regular reference for any clergy member looking to grow his Church and keep it healthy, as well as any lay person who is looking for more out of his church, and any man who is looking to walk closer with God. I would give this book 5 stars and encourage you to buy one for yourself, one for your Pastor, and some to give out to your friends.”

“MEN AND THE CHURCH is a practical and relevant handbook that equips men to find their way back as active participants and leaders in the Church. Through an examination of the problems with the 21st Century Church, author Jay Crouse provides a road map for men to get back involved in a meaningful, fulfilling and significant way. There is a future for Men in our Church and this book is a "must read" for men and church leaders who are seeking a path that will bear fruit and positively change the way that men view the Church.”

Jeff Kern


“Men and the Church... there is definitely a BIG future as long as there are passionate and faithful men like Jay Crouse to help lead men! As a follower of Jesus, I have been blessed to also be a follower/encourager of Jay’s vision of building up men and seeing first hand his highly productive methods in building and sustaining a vibrant Men’s Ministry in our church. This book brilliantly outlines a model to effectively challenge men to be more involved in their local churches and thus strengthening their families. It gives them the courage to become “Authentic Men” so they can go out, much like the original Disciples did, and spread this vital men’s relationship to other men.”
