A Note from the Women’s Leadership Ministry

Together in Ministry: Women and Men in Flourishing Partnerships

Are there rules for men and women working together in ministry? Who sets the rules? What do healthy boundaries look like for both men and women? How does one start a conversation about the intangible relationship dynamics of a mixed-gender ministry partnership? Dr. Rob Dixon has written a book titled Together in Ministry that offers a prophetic roadmap for individuals and communities as they seek to develop flourishing ministry partnerships for women and men. Read more about his book and research at the link below. I also hope you’ll join us on January 13 at 11:00 am Eastern for a conversation with Rob as he presents a vision and model for flourishing partnerships in the church.

  • Vibrant Congregations: “Church Now Conversation”
    January 13 online at 11am ET
    Rev. Elaine May hosts Rob Dixon, author of Together in Ministry: Women and Men in Flourishing Partnerships Women and men are designed to work together in fulfilling God's mission on earth. Yet God's original intent for equal partnership has been so distorted that churches and organizations continually struggle to foster healthy mixed-gender ministry collaboration. Is it even possible to return to the Genesis ideal of co-laborers in today's contexts? Longtime ministry leader Rob Dixon knows it's possible―though it takes intentionality, courage, and wisdom.
