  • Christian Men Who Hate Women: Healing Hurting.

Lee Grady is a real champion for women in ministry—and in women in ministry leadership. So when I saw his column “7 'Reasons' We Don't Empower Women Leaders,” I was more than a little interested in reading what he had to say.

Grady wrote his column against the backdrop of the Church of England overturning centuries of tradition by voting to allow women as priests and bishops. That's the highest office in the age-old church. While many celebrated the move, Grady notes, others rose up with strong words against it despite the fact that Queen Elizabeth II is the ultimate leader in Britain.

Grady may have put it mildly when he said women leadership is a “hot-potato” issue in the church. Some Protestant denominations don't believe women should serve in any leadership capacity, much less stand in the pulpit. Pentecostals and charismatics, by contrast, have seen the likes of Aimee Semple McPherson, Kathryn Khulman, Marilyn Hickey, Gloria Copeland, Joyce Meyer and many others lift their voices for the cause of Christ—with warm welcomes from men and women alike.
