Would you attend a single-gender group?

Today’s post, like those on Mondays, is taken from a book on Sunday School, small groups, or another book on church leadership. The thought for today comes from the book Transformational Class by David Francis. Click here to get the free ebook.

Would you organize your Bible study groups according to gender? David has some thoughts and experience to share with us:

There’s an emerging trend that merits consideration in the people-grouping conversation. After decades in which coed classes dominated the scene in Sunday morning classes and weekday small groups, single gender classes are making a comeback.

And not just among adults! One of the most consistently effective student ministries I know of has organized all its classes – both middle and high schoolers – for girls and boys. In fact, because of tremendous growth coupled with lack of space, this thriving student ministry new meets in a school building…tables are arranged by grade and gender and facilitated by a teacher of the same gender.

What do you see as the advantages and disadvantages of aligning your Bible study groups around the gender of the participants?
