Women in Scripture
and Mission

Christian history is full of remarkable women. Here we highlight women in the Old Testament, New Testament and in mission since the early days of the church through to the twenty-first century.  Some of them are complicated, where there is much to say.  Others are only barely remembered, and yet their story is worth knowing.  They were created in God’s image as a strong rescue, and through the power of the Holy Spirit they prophecy, heal, preach, teach, create, lead, fight, nurture, protect, and disciple others.  All-in-all, they provide the church with a window into how women are an integral part of God’s story.
