I thought I’d try Rose’s experiment on a church where I used to work. I’ve always viewed this church and the people who work there as being very supportive of women in ministry, so I was a bit surprised when I found that none of the 11 current pastors are women. I’d love for you to try this with churches you’re affiliated with and report back what you find.
What have been your experiences with women (or as a woman) in ministry?
