David Murrow is director of Church for Men, an organization dedicated to restoring a healthy, life-giving masculine spirit in Christian congregations. He is the author of Why Men Hate Going to Church (Thomas Nelson Publishers). The book has been firmly planted in the top 1 percent at Amazon.com since its release in March 2005.

He’s spoken about the gender gap on the “NBC Nightly News,” Fox News Channel and PBS.

A sought-after speaker, Murrow delivered the keynote address for the National Coalition of Men’s Ministries, Presbyterian Men, and Lutheran Men in Mission, to name a few. He’s recently begun writing and speaking for Promise Keepers. His presentations are fast-paced, informative and funny. Expect to laugh – a lot! He builds his presentations on humorous photos, unforgettable illlustrations and dramatic re-enactments of the things that drive men crazy about church. “My men’s weekends are designed to get guys talking around tables, instead of just listening to me teach,” he says.

He’s contributed material to Discovery Channel, NBC, ABC, CBS, Food Network, Travel Channel, Dr. Phil, The Miss America Pageant and many others.
