7 WAYS TO PRACTICE GENDER EQUALITY IN YOUR CHURCH

From The Junia Project

7-Ways-to-Practice-1At times I have been frustrated by the number of churches that claim egalitarian theology, but are not actually practicing it. I’ve been overwhelmed by example after example, and feeling like the church as a whole would never get anywhere. Then a pastor encouraged me to focus on churches that are doing it well instead, and to use those examples as encouragement to others. These churches are out there, and they are doing amazing things!

Here are 7 ways this church makes a visible and active effort to support the leadership of women:

  1. Co-preaching
  2. Scripture choices
  3. Sermon editing
  4. Preaching on gender
  5. Gender diversity in roles
  6. Encouraging men and women leaders
  7. Listening to a diversity of voices
