As a young girl, I just loved to talk. I talked all the way through primary school and high school, and when I became a Christian at fourteen, I loved to talk with my Christian friends and leaders about what it meant to follow Jesus. Thirty (thirty!?) years on, I still love to be a part of these encouraging Christian conversations. I went searching for podcasts that specialised in conversations with Christian Women. When I couldn't find any, I decided to start one!
Since 2011 Jane Tooher has been Director of the Priscilla & Aquila Centre: a centre with the stated mission of benefitting women and encouraging their ministries in partnership with men. We chat with Jane about possible blindspots and barriers to effective complementary partnerships in ministry.
The Bible speaks of distinctive and complementary roles for women and men in ministry, but what might that look like in practice? What does it look like in a parachurch setting like university ministry? We chat to Tim Earnshaw and Julia Bollen. Tim is the Campus Director and Jules the Senior Women’s Staff Worker with the Christian Union at James Cook University (JCU).
