On Junia Project Today – Joining an Egalitarian Church Staff

jp

Today I’m over at the Junia Project with a few thoughts about the process of coming on staff at Willow Creek as it relates to egalitarianism.  Willow has supported men and women in equal ministry and leadership functions since it’s founding. This was a major draw for me and Curtis, and seeing how that value manifested in the hiring process was particularly encouraging.

If you’d like to read it, you can head over to Junia Project.

The Junia Project is a community of women and men advocating for the inclusion of women at all levels of leadership in the Christian church and for mutuality in marriage. We believe that when interpreted correctly, the Bible teaches that both men and women are called to serve at all levels of the Church, and that leadership should be based primarily on gifting and not on gender.
