Cover for Raising Women Leaders: Perspectives in Liberating Women in Pentecostal and Charismatic Contexts

With Associate Professor Jacqueline Grey.

Pentecostal andcharismatic churches should be at the vanguard of raising female leaders. They share a history grounded in the pioneering ministry of Spirit filled women. They have formal structures of ordination based in giftedness rather than gender. And they develop their theology out of a shared spiritual experience that overcomes the barriers of class, race andsex. Despite these potential forces for equality, women in many churches still experience sexism and find it much harder than men to rise to senior positions of leadership.This book responds to this situation. It is driven by a passion to reclaim the tradition of empowering women. It seeks to provide the next generation with theological andpractical tools that will help them follow the leading of the Spirit in the pursuit of their goals and dreams.

AC’s Dean of Theology, Assoc Prof Shane Clifton and AC’s Associate Professor of Biblical Studies, Assoc Prof Jacqui Grey bring together the expertise of authors from various scholarly disciplines, exegetes, theologians, historians and philosophers, along with leadership theorists and practitioners, all from diverse denominational backgrounds. Together, they share the belief that the gospel facilitates liberation from oppression and encourages all people, women and men alike, to flourish in life and ministry.
