Courage to Include Women in Ministry While Honoring Doctrinal Beliefs
With so many different opinions about women leading in the church, how do we honor women who feel called without compromising our doctrines?
This session will help bring clarity as to how Christ cultivated an environment that included women who are gifted in leadership. We’ll discover an understanding of how men and women can work well together in ministry as we discuss ways to allow room for female leaders (within the guidelines of our individual churches) without watering down scripture or adding to scripture. We’ll discuss the women of the bible and how God used 52 women to bring change in the world through roles of leadership, servanthood, support positions, and prayer positioning.
1 – How men and women are intended to complement one another, not war against each other for kingdom positioning
2 – How the enemy has used this division to destroy the body of Christ
3 – How, if we had room to grow together and cultivate space where God’s spirit could flow, our churches will grow and lives can be transformed
