Run Like a Woman

It's time to talk about the elephant in the room. Should women preach? Should they lead a church? What does the Bible really say about this?
Bible scholar Jacqui Grey helps unpack this divisive issue.

Show Notes

Complementarians say women shouldn’t be senior leaders of a church and some say women also shouldn’t teach or preach to men.

Egalitarians say women can lead churches and they can preach and teach to anyone.

So who's right and who's wrong? And what does the Bible really say?

Jacqui Grey, Dean of Theology and Professor of Biblical Studies at Alphacrucis College, steps us through the answers she has found to these questions.

She also addresses the cultural and practical barriers for women in church ministry, and suggests how to open doors for women to better use their gifts.

“Hearing raw, honest stories from other Christian women is a truly powerful thing. Even if their experience is different to mine, I have found it relatable and often healing. It resonates with me for a long time afterwards." – a Run Like a Woman listener
