The Seventh Day Adventist Church has called on men to mentor youths and help reduce cases of alcoholism, drug abuse and other irresponsible lifestyles.
Speaking as he officiated a 12-team Adventist Men’s Organisations tournament in Nairobi yesterday, the Church’s East Kenya Union Conference leader Macharia John said men should actively participate in the nurturing of male children to bring them closer to God.
“The boy-child, if we are not careful, will be lost because we have left them unattended. Let’s support and consciously work towards the shaping of boys today, or we risk having a generation of irresponsible men in future,” said Mr Macharia.
The tournament, held at the Nairobi West Prison in Nairobi, brought together 12 teams from the church’s branches located in different stations in Nairobi.
