I am very excited to announce that The Junia Project is hosting a free event on Gender & Calling in the Church with guest speaker Shauna Niequist on February 27 at Foothill Community Church in Azusa, CA!
The Topic – Gender & Calling in the Church
The Junia Project is passionate about an egalitarian understanding of men, women, and the Church, and we are excited to have Shauna speaking to us about this important topic. Shauna is an amazing speaker, talented author, and she presents a very unique perspective on women and men serving in the Church. I had the honor of hearing from Shauna at the Q Women and Calling conference last November (which I wrote about here). She spoke about what she had learned by watching her parents, Bill and Lynne Hybels, navigate the early days of Willow Creek Community Church. When I heard her story, I knew The Junia Project had to host her for an event. You really don’t want to miss this!
Date: Thursday February 27, 2014
Time: 7-8.30 pm
Location: Foothill Community Church
777 E. Alosta Ave.
Azusa, CA 91702
There will be snacks, coffee, and fun people! A limited number of Shauna’s books will be available for purchase.
