Darrin Patrick provides a powerful illustration of the important role men have played in the history of the church and their importance in the future.

A powerful call for better men, called men, determined men, dependent men, able men...a call for men to be the leaders of the church.

Wow, a good message but was a little concerned about saying "we need better pastors". Though true we need to be the best pastors we can be the death of a church can not wholly be laid in the laps of Pastors. So much of what happens in ministry is already blamed on pastors who quite frankly, often times, stand alone in trying to lead people who are unwilling.
