Jennie Allen and Rebekah Lyons Want to Tweak the Conversation Around Women in Ministry

Jennie Allen and Rebekah Lyons want to change the conversation surrounding women in ministry by taking the focus off doctrine, and turn it instead to equipping women to use their gifts and follow their callings.
