I’M ENOUGH: LEARNING TO LIVE CONFIDENTLY IN YOUR OWN SKIN

I'm Enough is a "must read" for any woman wanting to better understand her role in our world as God sees it. Women are created by God as equal to men and charged with ruling over the earth side by side with them. However, multiple obstacles stand in the way of women arriving at their place within this division vision. Drawing on biblical texts, Jackie skillfully explains this truth in a personable, easy to understand manner.

SHE CAN TEACH: empowering women to teach the scriptures effectively

Conservative evangelical women are least likely to be trained in the areas of teaching and preaching. It's a tragic state of affairs, given the central value that our tradition places on the Scriptures. In this book, Jackie Roese examines the forces, both past and present, that have discouraged women from becoming trained. We'll discover that women are indeed called, gifted, and mandated in Scripture to herald the Word of God. The first half of the book will focus on encouraging women to become as fully equipped as our male counterparts, and to use their uniquely female voice in proclaiming truth to other women in various settings outside pulpit preaching. But encouragement isn't enough.

Many women who already teach Bible studies, or who desire to teach, are in no position to pursue formal studies in a seminary. To that end, the second half of She Can Teach is dedicated to developing homiletic skills. Together we will learn how to study a passage, find the main idea, and build and deliver a biblical message. By the end of this book, the reader will be better equipped to proclaim truth, through her uniquely female voice, to her female audience.

LIME GREEN: RESHAPING OUR VIEW OF WOMEN IN THE CHURCH

Each of us, in our own shade of color, says something unique about who God is to the world around us. God didn’t give specific colors to specific genders. It’s one big color wheel, and gender isn’t in the equation. How does our embracing our authentic color – unapologetically who we are – controlled by the Spirit, impact our view of women in conservative faith communities? Lime Green helps answer that question. 

This a story about Jackie Roese, a clueless farm girl who stumbled into vocational Christian work. Jackie bumped into walls, crossed invisible lines, and ultimately reshaped her view of women—and her church’s view, too. This book doesn't make the case for women to preach or lead in the church. Rather, it shares this is one woman’s story of stumbling and bumping to reveal a way, a path with all its rocks, hills, and smooth road, to help others find their footing in reshaping the way we view women in the Church.

RELATIONSHIFT: CHANGING THE CONVERSATION ABOUT MEN AND WOMEN IN THE CHURCH

The authors take a fresh look at the gender debate in the church. Rather than roles, the authors examine the Scriptural emphasis on relationships, specifically brother-sister type relationships based on love, humility, and mutuality. Instead of defining structured roles for men and women as argued by complementarian or egalitarian positions, this "relationarian" approach can be lived out in the existing structures of any culture. Focusing on relationships can enable the church to move beyond the divisions of the gender debate. Rather than two camps, complementarian and egalitarian, we can be unified in one camp by focusing on the type of relations that are an attractive missional witnesses to the world.

IN PARTNERSHIP

Resources for the role of women and Men

The Marcella Project is committed to ennobling women through Scripture-based teaching, training, and dialogue. If you desire to know where we "stand" in our theological understanding of men and women, you can read our materials and/or refer to Carolyn Custis James' description of what it means to be the "Blessed Alliance." https://carolyncustisjames.com/2012/09/18/the-blessed-alliance/

Because of our mission, we are often asked for resources pertaining to the role of women in the Church and home. Those requests tend to come from complementarians who desire to study "the other side of the story," hence the focus of the resources suggested.  The following resources are written by orthodox Bible scholars who hold to the high authority of Scripture. May the Lord bless your inquiry as you dig, study, discern, and pray.  

 

 

How BENT TREE made room for women

Something is known when we are physically present with one another. People become human, not just public targets. Being present with other human beings matters. Being with forms and informs us. Seeing my brothers, hearing their deep male voices declare with gut-level conviction, "Women, we want you. We need you. You make us better." - it cut to the core of my image-bearing humanity. They moved over. They made room. They gave up power to empower those without power. If you want to know what "biblical manhood" looks like - here it is. - Jackie Roese

The future of leadership at bent tree

Pastor Pete Briscoe is a world-renowned Bible teacher. He leads Bent Tree Bible Fellowship in Carrollton, Texas. He is featured, along with his parents Pastors Stuart and Jill Briscoe, on TellingtheTruth.org.  Pete's compelling Bible exposition is always solid theology with engaging application. Take some time to listen to the humility of this pastor and follow along as he leads you through a solid Biblical explanation for women leading in the Church. - Jackie Roese

* Be sure to take note of his reference to how we choose foundational passages and the impact of those choices.
