Men and Sunday school

Why don't men lead at Sunday school?

This is a question I've heard at Sunday school meetings every time we talk about looking for more leaders.

The conversation then heads in the direction of coming up with a plan to try and convince men that its not going to be a big commitment.

I would like to suggest this is the problem.

For many men the reason they like their job is because they have to work hard, it stretches them and engages them.
Men are competitive, they want to be challenged.

I think trying to convince men that Sunday school and children's ministry is easy and takes no effort actually drives men away.

Colossians 3:23 remind us Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men,

Whatever we are involved in, Sunday school, youth group, one to one ministry we are to work at it with all our heart.
