We have begun a series on church leadership at Revolution. Over the next few months, we will discuss what church leadership roles are envisioned by the inspired authors of Scripture, what those roles entail and who is qualified to fill those roles. We will spend the bulk of our time discussing the gender issue, i.e., what roles are open to both genders and what roles, if any, were intended by God to be filled by males only.
Here is the schedule for the next few weeks:
May 3: What church leadership positions existed in the early church and what roles exist now?
May 10: Who is qualified to fill church leadership roles?
May 17: Work day! We take a breather to work on the new building together and just hang out.
May 24: The egalitarian perspective (i.e., women and men may serve in any and all church leadership roles).
May 31: The complimentarian perspective (i.e., women may, and should, serve in all church leadership roles save elder/lead teaching pastor).
June 7: The pros and cons of each position.
June 14: Open forum.
June 21: Leadership Team decision and discussion.
We hope and pray that these sessions will be grace filled and profitable as Revolution forms into a church dedicated to fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20) and bringing honor and glory to God.
Please feel free to join us for any and all of these sessions.
In the meantime, I will be posting more on these issues regularly throughout the forthcoming weeks, so be sure to check back in.
Grace and peace.
