More Internet Ideas that Work

How are you connecting with your church and community in cyberspace?

Men's Book Club


Frustrated because our guys couldn't make their schedules work for a Christian book study a couple of years ago, I stumbled onto the idea of a small group meeting in cyberspace.

Once we all had the book and each other's e-mail addresses, I assigned each man a chapter to review. We discussed Stormie Omartian's The Power of a Praying Husband by e-mail. Whenever we met in church, we would talk about it in real time, but that was a bonus.

The Internet study worked so well I suggested it to a friend who runs a website that equips married couples. Together we created a study called the Growing Husband's Book Club (http://www.growthtrac.com). Visitors can join the club and receive periodic commentary on the Omartian book, or a second book, The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. So far, more than 500 men have participated through the Internet.
