Season of Listening: Addressing the Changing Needs of Female Leadership
by Kristena Morse
"While it is agreed that women's leadership roles are expanding and evolving in the church, we still have a long way to go. Women face unique challenges in ministry, and we are here to help support them in their work and their faith journey," says Jewel McRae, associate for Women's Leadership Development and Young Women's Ministries in Racial Ethnic & Women's Ministries. "With that in mind, the staff in Racial Ethnic & Women's Ministries has spent the past 12 months in a 'season of listening' aimed at learning more about the real needs of female leaders and future leaders in the church, and figuring out ways that our office can help and support them," she adds.
