I'm excited by the number of events for women in leadership there are coming up in the next few months so look out for blog posts about them this week: an academic event for those studying the issue, a day conference for women in ministry and an event for women in senior leadership. But today, here are some details about Soul Survivor's event Equal for young women and their leaders.
What does the Bible really say about women in leadership? And what does it actually look like for women to be leaders in the church today? These are two of the questions that will be tackled at the Soul Survivor ‘Equal’ day that is being held on Saturday 2nd June. Hosted by Ali Martin and Mike Pilavachi, the Soul Survivor team will be joined by Jo Saxton (author of High Heels and Holiness and Influential) as they explore some of the theology and practices of women in leadership.
The day is open to any women aged 16+, is taking place at the Soul Survivor Watford warehouse (Hertfordshire) and is £5 (including a cream tea!). The team will be host a number of sessions with worship, teaching and ministry, and during the day there will be an opportunity to put questions to the panel about women in leadership.
So gather a group of female friends and get yourselves tickets for this day that will be a great chance to explore what it means for women to be leaders in today’s church. Find out more and get your tickets at www.soulsurvivor.com/uk/events/equal.
Here are some comments from young women who attended last year's debut event:
- I now feel empowered and stronger to speak up – some insecurities stem from being female in a male dominated society. I don’t need to stand up for myself, but for God’s will and glory!
- I can now be confident that God wants women in leadership. Before now, because of certain passages that I didn’t fully understand, I was never 100% certain of this.
- Thank you for insight, affirmation and support/ safe environment to broach questions and great atmosphere and opportunity to learn word, worship and fellowship.
