More About Group Publishing
Group is much more than a publisher of ministry resources for Christian churches. Sure, we make an abundance of products for Sunday school, VBS, children's ministry, youth ministry, and more.
But what we really offer are experiences that grow your relationship with Jesus. Whether it's a Bible lesson, kids' craft, or teen mission trip, everything Group does revolves around getting closer to God.
If there's one thing you need to know about us, it's that we're enthusiastic about church ministry. Our team is made up of world-renowned ministry experts who spend their everyday lives in the trenches of real church ministry. We love this stuff, and we want nothing more than to help you be successful in your ministry.
What We Do
Being based at the foot of the Colorado Rocky Mountains gives us a constant, majestic reminder of God's love and power in our lives. We use that inspiration to create resources for ministry to women, men, families, small groups, pastors, worship leaders, and even administrators.
We also have a wealth of resources for those who lead ministry volunteers (which is just about everybody). You'll find books, curriculum, magazines, websites, DVDs, CDs, kits, events, online training, and so much more here at Group. If your church does it, Group can probably help. (A lot.)

Quick Review of Mens' Ministry Feb 22, 2010
I was hesitant about purchasing this book because I suspected that it would written for the American (and most likely) evangical audience. I wasn't wrong at all. I can't see a lot of these suggestions going down well with the men at our church - that is, non American men with a leaning to anglo-catholic theology. Having said this, there are some good concepts and ideas that I can use in setting up our Mens' Group and I'll 'cherry pick' these. It would be good to get a hold of a book written for men who don't want religion (christianity) to be so prominant on the agenda....men who don't want to 'be saved' all of the time. I think there are a lot of us in Australia, the UK and even in your country who would appreciate a more relaxed mens' environment with Christianity included as a more intellectual excercise, but not all of the time.
Super for starting a men's ministry! Mar 13, 2008
Our church wants to start a new kind of men's ministry and this book is the ticket! The first chapter covers how to get things off the ground and the last chapter is how to get men to serve each other--and they cover everything vital to a thriving men's ministry inbetween. From retreats and fun nights to being open and real with one another--something that doesn't come to easily to most men. Very helpful, practical, and fun to read. We can't wait to use these ideas to super-charge our new ministry to men!

Great Foundation and Ongoing Resource Dec 20, 2007
I picked up this book for my husband, who is getting a Men's Ministry off the ground at our church. I had purchased Women's Ministry in the 21st Century when our Women's Ministry was getting started and found it rich with foundational ideas and tools for many aspects of the ministry. Our Men's Ministry is not officially called Men's Ministry, because they want to make it edgy...something "manly men" will want to be a part of. For this reason, when I brought home the book, my husband was a bit hesitant. He didn't necessarily want to fit the ministry into a book. But once he started looking at it, he said, "This is a really good book!" (I held my sarcastic reply.) Men's Ministry in the 21st Century will help anyone with the process of putting down a foundation and enhancing what you already have. And there is no need to read the book from cover to cover (although you might find yourself doing just that!). It's so well organized, you can simply look for that specific tool, study, or service idea you want.
