About the Resource

Seems like everything that can be said about women in leadership has already been said, and a lot of us are bone weary of the debate. Anyone expecting this workshop to be more of the same, will be disappointed. Expect a fresh take on this worn out topic. We are moving the discussion to a new location beyond the debate and asking deeper questions that the debate o en overlooks. Don’t worry—the Bible will be central to our discussion, plus church history, plus a lot of common sense.
