I just listened to a stimulating interview with Jen Wilkin about how to orchestrate and organize a women’s ministry.
Now I bet most men reading this have already tuned out and moved on, but if you’re still with me I urge you: Listen to this! Especially if you’re a church leader or spouse of someone involved in “women’s ministry.” It’s so tempting to think women’s ministry has nothing to do with us men, and that, as long as things aren’t exploding, the women should just do whatever they want. But that’s not support; it’s indifference and neglect. They often need and want our support. That means taking an interest in what they’re doing, hearing them out, and offering constructive feedback and effective training when appropriate.
And Wilkin has proven advice on how to do this with excellence. We all would do well to consider her counsel and figure out how to apply it to our circumstances.
