We need more women in church leadership #dminlgp

It's been exciting to see the growth and developments of the Leadership and Global Perspectives Doctor of Ministry I lead for George Fox.  In particular the increasing numbers of students from countries outside the USA alongside the wonderful US students.

It's also been so wonderful to see the growth of the numbers of women involved as students and part of the faculty team.  In this photo are 4 women from 4 continents as students, USA, Europe, Africa and Asia along with two advisers from the US and Africa.

Having their input, hearing their voice and stories made the recent time we had in Seoul so much richer.  Listening to them, I realised again that despite the difficulties I have faced in life, I have not faced restrictions to exploring leadership and calling because of my gender.
