#SHELeads is coming on October 29th!
This is a one day summit convened by Missio Alliance for women who lead in church and ministry contexts. But it’s not just for women – it’s also for men who long to see the mission of God advanced through the “the Blessed Alliance”; the co-laboring of men and women in kingdom ministry. It will be held at multiple venues across the U.S. and can also be viewed from home (see link below.)
The Junia Project is emceeing and co-hosting at the First Church of the Nazarene in Pasadena and we would love to see you there!
Mainstage Speakers (live from Chicago)
“The Opportunities ‘Before’ Us”
Jo Anne Lyon
General Superintendent Emerita
The Wesleyan Church
Church Planter, Author
Professor at Northern Seminary, Chicago, IL
#SheLeads will open with a conversation between Jo Anne Lyon and David Fitch, two leaders who have worked to advance and empower women as leaders throughout their ministry careers. Drawing on their experience and familiarity with historical movements related to gender and leadership, Jo Anne and David will offer an important perspective on how we should engage the opportunities before us with theological wisdom and missional faithfulness.
“The Blessed Alliance”
Carolyn Custis James
Author of Half the Church, The Gospel of Ruth,
Malestrom & more
James has a vision of shared leadership between men and women that can help us move past the (all-too-often caricatured) besetting dichotomies we have inherited. In this session she will talk about how we can recover this Blessed Alliance in our ministry relationships.
“Leading With Spiritual Authority”
Planter and Pastor
Mission Point Church Church, Minneapolis
Board Chair, 3D Movements
Deborah led a nation with it. Miriam led worship with it. Mary had it, Eunice and Lois invested it into their family, Priscilla taught with it, Junia pioneered with it. Yet many of today’s women leaders are perplexed, even intimidated by the idea of it. This session explores how leaders can live and lead with spiritual authority – because the church and her mission are lifeless without it.
Greater Los Angeles Participants
It’s not enough to hear great speakers—we need to be able to apply what we are learning in our context. These local presenters will help us do that through table discussions, a panel with Q&A, and a special time of worship and commissioning.
