Men are attending church in fewer numbers today than any time in history. They need Christian mentors and Godly examples of “Real Men” they can look up to. In The Zone was created to meet that need by delivering positive messages on work, faith, fatherhood, and marriage delivered by sports, business leaders and bible teaching pastors. In The Zone has everything your church needs to begin an exciting ministry to men, or to grow your current ministry.
Churches from Maine to California are asking: Where are the men? Women comprise more than 60% of the adults in the typical Christian worship service in America. Some congregations report ten women for every man in attendance. Volunteer ranks are heavily female. No other religion suffers the enormous gender gaps that are affecting Christianity. It’s not just attendance where men trail women. Men are less likely to lead, volunteer, and give to the church. They pray less, share their faith less, and read the Bible less. The men who do go to church are often passive and unengaged. It’s difficult to get churchgoing men to do anything other than attend services. Men need the church—but the church also needs men. The presence of enthusiastic men is one of the surest predictors of church health, growth, giving, and expansion. Meanwhile, a man shortage is a sure warning sign to a church . In The Zone was created to help the local church reach more men for Jesus Christ.
With the help of Coach Bill McCartney, founder of Promise Keepers, Kyle Rote, Jr.(a former mega sports agent) and Dr. Joe Pettigrew started the men’s ministry called In The Zone. It was intended to replace Promise Keepers as Coach McCartney felt his organization had completed its “season” and wanted another organization to continue to minister nationally to men. However, with the absence of Promise Keepers and the decline of men attending church, In The Zone has set out to create a new concept of men’s ministry that will be exciting and relevant to men of all ages. GameDayLive was developed after speaking with thousands of Christian men and their pastors.In The Zone is continually evolving as to stay relevant for today’s men while never losing the focus of challenging men to honor the Lord Jesus Christ in all areas of their lives.

This can be a ticketed events or a church sponsored event. We work with the churches to select the speakers, and we host and produce the event.
Just because you attend a smaller church it doesn't mean that you can't host an outstanding men's conference or retreat for your men. These events are exciting because your men get to hear life from outstanding Christian men and will be introduced to what Jesus teaches about being a real man.
