[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_wp_text title=”Women In Ministry” text=”This paper is a brief treatment on the issue of women in ministry. The role of women in ministry has been hotly debated for the last several decades. Articulate scholars espouse views on both sides of the fence. While Westwinds has a position on this issue, we feel strongly it shouldn’t cause friction within the body of Christ, and yet we know that any position we take will cause problems with some. In the spirit of love we remain resolved as a board and staff on this issue as detailed in the following pages. This is not meant to be an exhaustive overview of all the relevant passages nor of all the sidebars inherent in the issue. These are the relevant points we feel establish a formidable base upon which to establish our position on mutuality and equality between genders.”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
