Is it time for the Southern Baptist Convention to reevaluate its traditional views on women serving as pastors? In an eye-opening conversation, we tackle the question of whether these views reflect sound biblical theology or are simply remnants of outdated sexist ideology. Our guests are Southern Baptist preacher Rev. Dr. Stephen Drake along with Drs. Erin Moniz and Jon Huggins, both of whom are ordained in the Anglican Church of North America.
We discuss the recent Southern Baptist meeting in New Orleans in which several churches were ejected from the SBC for having female pastors, and also additional restrictions were placed on women in pastoral roles (pending final approval next year). Comparing the Southern Baptist Convention's practices to those within the Anglican Church and other Christian traditions, we explore the evolving perspectives on gender roles in church leadership. Erin shares her experiences as a woman being called to ministry and pursuing her ordination.
As we wrap up, we delve into the concepts of complementarianism, egalitarianism, and mutuality, examining their implications for gender roles within the church. Our guests share their perspectives on the roles of men and women in church leadership and the vital need for both voices to be represented. We also touch on the potential harm that can be caused unintentionally by certain messaging and recommend resources for further exploration. Join us for this enlightening and engaging conversation on the ever-evolving roles of women in church leadership.
