GENDER & MINISTRY
From time to time people ask us what Morling's position is on the roles of men and women; especially in relation to church-based ministry. Fruitful discussions about gender and ministry happen in many of our classes. Sometimes these are intentional and at other times they arise as students share how they see God at work in their own lives and in the lives of men and women around them.
In some of our New Testament Units, there are specific and intentional discussions where lecturers engage with Bible passages and the various perspectives that can shape our views about gender roles in ministry.
Click HERE to learn more about this and watch a short video of me speaking with Tim MacBride and David Starling, two of our New Testament lecturers, about how they teach in this area when looking at the Pastoral Epistles. While this video provides an informal snapshot, we hope that it provides a helpful example of how we teach and how we encourage all students to graciously learn together.
