Engendering Mission

Through strategy, organization, and subversion, women have proven time and again that the Holy Spirit gifts individuals, regardless of gender, with the power to teach, preach, and minister to others. In this issue you will find stories of courageous individuals determined to share the gospel. Their legacies and the challenges they put forth provide us with much to draw on as we consider gender in our changing contexts, and what it means to bear the good news.
