For nearly 15 years Trisha and I have worked together closely to equip people to live missionally. We have written a book, developed materials for training pastors and congregational leaders, and have traveled together to cities across the country to implement the training.
We both hold deep convictions that the relationships between men and women present one of the systemic challenges that we face in our families and communities. We believe It is in the design of God for men and women to collaborate as equals in the missional life. As we have worked here in Houston and in congregations across the country, we are frequently asked about our beliefs and practices related to working together as an unmarried couple.
We’ve recently decided to do this series of five podcasts that address the questions and concerns that we have heard expressed by people in a wide variety of settings. In this episode, we address the question, “What is God’s design for men and women as they work together?”
- God Created both male and female in His image
- Jesus redefines power and authority
- Authority, roles, and collaboration
- The importance of context
- Do we take the scriptures literally?
- Mutual submission
- Why this conversation is important
