Over the past few months, I've had a number of conversations with people about the state of of young men within the church. Most of us have come to a conclusion that there are many 'old' boys but not many young 'real men' in the church today. What sets apart boys from men? Is it the tonka toys they play with compared to big boys toys? Or is it the state of their singleness or relationship? Is it if they are living at home or moved out? Is it the fact that they are in leadership positions or not? Some of these may be relevant in minor ways, but the quality that separates boys and men is maturity.
