The Case for Biblical Equality | Influence Podcast


In today’s Influence Podcast, I interview Dr. Mimi Haddad of CBE International regarding the case for biblical equality. (CBE stands for “Christians for Biblical Equality.”)

As a Pentecostal, I am concerned that we stay true to biblical teaching and our spiritual heritage by recognizing that God calls and empowers both men and women to leadership.

The issue goes beyond ministry roles in church, however, to the way we conceive of male-female relations at home and in society. Dr. Haddad and I get into these issues in our podcast, and I hope you’ll take a listen!

Shattering the Stained Glass Ceiling | Influence Podcast


In Episode 111 of the Influence Podcast, I talk with Dr. Robyn Wilkerson about her new book, Shattering the Stained Glass Ceiling, which publishes on October 3rd.
 
The Assemblies of God (USA) has ordained women for ministry for decades, but many women ministers still face barriers to their leadership.
 
Some of the barriers are external, as when people–men, usually–say that women can’t be spiritual leaders. (Waldemar Kowalski and I talk about what Paul really said about women in ministry in Episode 72.)
 
The barriers Dr. Wilkerson and I talk about are internal, however–self-limiting patterns of thinking that hold women back. Shattering the Stained Glass Ceiling outlines a coaching strategy for overcoming these negative ways of thinking about one’s own leadership.
 

Daniel Im | Influence Podcast


In today’s #InfluencePodcast, Daniel Im and I talk about how new book, No Silver Bullets: 5 Small Shifts That Will Transform Your Ministry. Daniel argues that churches need to make five micro-shifts in ministry: (1) from destination to direction, (2) from output to input, (3) from sage to guide, (4) from form to function, and (5) from maturity to missionary. My review of the book will be up at InfluenceMagazine.com and here on Wednesday.
