Are you a young woman who feels called by God to be a leader in His church?

For centuries, women in church leadership have been a thing of great rarity.

So when we, as younger women, come to feel called by God into a position of leadership, it can be hard to know what it could look like and whether we might fit the mould.

In the bible we see God calling on numerous women to lead and have significant roles in his great story: there’s brave Deborah; the prophetess Miriam; humble and foreign Ruth; wise and prayerful Esther; Mary the virgin, an uneducated teacher, carer and mother; Mary Magdelane, a broken woman who became a great disciple; wealthy businesswoman Lydia; and Junia, a respected apostle.

So, if you are brave, a prophet, humble, foreign, wise, prayerful, uneducated, a teacher, a carer, a mum, broken, a disciple, wealthy, a businesswomen or an apostle, or even a mix of them all, then you are in good company. There’s no perfect mould, God calls you just as you are.
