Course Description

This course examines the role of women in Christian leadership with a particular focus on recent developments in women's formal and informal church leadership roles. Drawing from a variety of Wesleyan and other Christian sources, students will engage with texts, contexts and practices from their own denominational heritage and examine them comparatively with those of other traditions. The course provides an opportunity to study leadership theories and feminist theologies to help identify the concepts of power and influence that operate in particular cultural and ecclesial contexts. Throughout the course, students are encouraged to reflect on their own experience and practice of ministry, interrogating their assumptions and perspectives, and to integrate learning into their future approaches to leadership. At the conclusion of the course, students will be able to clearly articulate the challenges faced by women in leadership in their own denomination and cultural context and identify specific interventions that could improve women's access to leadership roles in their community.
