The following article appeared in the October 2012 issue of Christianity Today. It is a list of today’s most influential Christian women leaders. Two Wesleyans are among the women – our General Superintendent, Dr. Jo Anne Lyon and President of Houghton College, Dr. Shirley Mullen.
Yes, there are always dangers in these kinds of lists. Just looking through the few comments that were posted – there were several “why wasn’t so and so listed” and so on. I think it’s pretty cool that out of 50 leading women, two are Wesleyans. The Wesleyan Church is a small denomination compared to many others and yet, here are two of our great leaders profiled in this article. Check it out.
