Series: Gifted for Leadership Bible Study
The daughter of a pastor, Amy Simpson grew up in the church. Amy is steeped in Christianity and swaddled in Christian culture. And yet, at women s events in church she s felt like an outsider, that she doesn t fit anywhere. Why? Because she doesn t enjoy crafts, isn t a stay-at-home mom, and simply doesn t square with the assumptions churches have about Christian women. So when a ministry is set up on those stereotypes, she doesn t fit in.
So what s a woman like Amy to do when she feels like she doesn t belong in her own church? What about women who are new Christians or searching for God who don t find a fit in women s ministries in the church? We ll explore these issues in this study.
