Women’s Leadership throughout Church History: Following the Teachings and Examples of Paul

2017 “Mutual By Design” CBE International Conference

Throughout history, the apostle Paul has been the most frequently cited authority for restricting women from shared leadership not only in ministry but also in marriage and the world. Sadly, those who cite Paul as an opponent of women’s equality overlook the many examples of women leaders building the church beside the apostle, in addition to his theological emphasis on newness of life in Christ.
