“So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” — Genesis 1:27
Women are needed in every arena on earth, especially in the ministry world, because of the unique gift and perspective they bring. Their gifts compliment — and are synergistic with — men. With women, organizations become more than they could be without them. They will bring a healthier, more-rounded and more-whole perspective everywhere they’re given a voice.

In this episode, the Chief Marketing Officer for Christian Life School of Theology Global (CLSTG), Jessie Williams, interviews Laurie Langley. They discuss the value of women in leadership, the importance of setting aside offense, and the challenges faced by many women in ministry.
