Invest in Fathers

(I shared this first over at ChurchCentral.com) In our anti-male climate, thoughts such as these could probably be scorned. Men are mocked, stereotyped, and sadly, considered as a necessary evil sometimes, yet if we hope to capture the next generation for Christ, men are the key.

Generational Faith Impartation
