WOW! Teachings

Women in Leadership? Well, why not?

Women in Leadership? Well, why not?

Often the Bible seems to place women in lower position than men and focuses on the achievements of men more than those of women. In chapter 5 of the book of Genesis in the 2nd verse it says, “He created them male and female and blessed them. And when they were...
