I wanted to give a quick post about women in ministry today!
Already I bet you have thoughts in your heads about where this could go! It amazes me that there are still conversations today about whether women should be in church leadership. Some people say yes, others say no, others say some types of leadership but not all!
I’m 100% on the side of yes women should be in ministry! In fact, the more women in leadership the better for the church. Women know how to organize, sympathize and any other ‘ize’ you can think of way better than men. Additionally, women don’t tend to have the ego’s us men have and they don’t go hide in their man cave when things get bad.
A church that has women as leaders is a church which will always get things done.
Now there are plenty of people who would say that women should not be in leadership because there was never an account of them in leadership in the bible. I can’t believe one would use such a baseless argument, but they do! Yet there was never an account of a youth pastor, children’s pastor, worship pastor or even a board in the bible, yet most of the people who are against women in leadership would say we need a board! Once more there are accounts of Christians having slaves in the bible; does this mean we should have them today? However, most churches do have slaves; they’re just called interns and staff!
Anyway, to get off my soapbox, I’m so thankful for the women in leadership around me! They help me become a better leader and I hope I help them become better leaders. They respond positively to me when I affirm and encourage then not when I demand for them to submit because that is what we believe the bible says!
One last thing, dude if you’re worried about women in leadership then you have some deep issues that you need to deal with right now, otherwise you will never be able to walk in the complete purposes that God intended for you!
