Mentoring Boys into Future Men

Gender-Specific Ministry Proves Vital
By Karl Fleig

Recently a 4-year-old boy proudly shared his newfound revelation on life: “Girls are differenter than boys!”

We all can smile at this often played-out scenario in children’s ministry. We can see the wheels turning as his young mind grapples with the revelation that the other gender not only looks and dresses differently but has different interests in toys, conversational topics, and play modes. Those differences, while influenced somewhat by society and culture, are innate in every gender from birth.

Many children’s ministries leaders know that incorporating learning styles and age-appropriate activities allow them to better disciple children. Research now bears out that when the gender of the child and the unique needs of that gender are factored into the programming and discipleship approaches by those ministries, they can have an even higher level of effectiveness.


Rangers workshop track will be highlighted for Royal Rangers leaders.
