LFP 5: Leanne McAlister on empowering women leaders in the Church

In a time when some theological circles are preaching male dominant leadership, there are some who are pushing back in favour of promoting women leaders in the church. In fact, we may be missing out on a huge blessing in the church by alienating women from leadership positions. 

Leanne McAlister has been working to empower women in ministry for years. As an incredible female leader herself, she proves through her own ministry the valuable impact women have in the church. Hear her heart in this interview as she calls for the empowerment of more women leaders.
