Coaching Session Reports
As a part of leadership development, pastors are asked to complete the following report after each coaching session to share their learnings and goals.
Regarding Women in Ministry
Since the earliest days of the Church of God Reformation Movement, women have been active and equal partners in evangelism, preaching, teaching, and prayer, affirming in practice what Paul declared in Galatians 3:26-28:
“So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
From the beginning of our movement, within the Church of God it has never been an issue as to whether or not women belong in ministry or in the leadership of the local church. Our history is rich with women evangelists, pastors, Bible teachers and preachers. Ohio Ministries continues to affirm that God gifts both women and men for ministry in His Kingdom and encourages congregations to prayerfully consider both as they discern God’s will in their selection of a new pastor.
