Finally a book that deals with the fatherless crisis we have in America and what the church can do to make a difference. In Fatherless America and the Church, Sam Mehaffie believes that if churches engage in even a small way to address the problem of fatherlessness, many boys and young men could avoid becoming sad statistics. A large percentage of our boys and young men are growing up without fathers in the home. Whom do they look to as role models? Who teaches them how to be good husbands, fathers and workers? Who is there to help them with everyday choices? The church should be a vital part of a ministry that reaches out to these boys. Imagine if a few men in every church decided to each mentor one boy what an impact it would make on that generation, on our cities, communities and neighborhoods. Men of faith and men's ministry groups can change what this next generation of fathers and husbands looks likes by becoming mentors and taking an active part in helping those boys on their road to manhood. This book will help you get there by showing you how to start a mentoring program in your church as well as how to become a mentor in your city or community through programs like Big Brothers.
