Ever wondered why there aren't more women pastors? Or why most churches have a male senior pastor and only female associates?

For centuries the church has been in conversation about the role of women. Some traditions limit what women can do while others are more egalitarian in their understanding. As a result, the church is not of one mind concerning women. If you want to learn more about the history of women in the church and what's ahead for the future, then come join the conversation.
