1.2 REFLECT

image_print

Now consider your organizational map and answer the following questions:

1

Do strategic roles tend to be filled by men or women? What about operational roles?

2

Of all the roles mapped, which would you consider most necessary for the functioning of the church? If those roles were not filled, how would the church function?

3

Is there a difference in the way the church values roles traditionally undertaken by women versus roles traditionally undertaken by men? Note differences in pay, decision-making authority, and both public and interpersonal recognition. What do these differences imply about the value and respect for different roles?

Consider:

  • Are there any observable patterns in paid vs. unpaid roles?
  • Who is sought out for making decisions? Who gets credit for decisions?
  • Which positions/roles can make independent decisions?
  • Who gets awarded with attention and recognition by the church body and leaders for performing their role?
