Insight 121: FaithSoaring Churches Empower Women in Ministry

Many congregations could transform more easily if they would empower women in ministry leadership. Women add a quality to ministry leadership that enhances the ability of congregations to transform. Women have gifts, skills, and preferences needed within congregations.

Denying the full expression of women in ministry leadership limits the capacity of congregations. Men too often dominate ministry leadership roles in congregations. Research shows that women in general have a deeper spiritual passion than do men. While it may be hard for some men to accept, there is a lot they can learn about being followers of Jesus from women.

What is the next step your congregation needs to take to further unleash this valuable resource?
