Women's Ministry in the Local Church

By J. Ligon Duncan III, Susan Hunt

Susan Hunt and Ligon Duncan walk through the Scriptures to help readers better understand what it means to have an effective, biblical women's ministry in the church. The benefits of women's ministries are great: training and discipling, evangelizing, and reaching out to the poor and needy. This book, written by seasoned ministry leaders, provides many proven tools to help start a women's ministry in your church.

Endorsements:

"What sets this book apart is not only the authors' careful thought but their compelling personal examples. The result is a deeply biblical yet intensely practical guide that will greatly benefit not only women, but pastors as well."
C.J. Mahaney, Senior Pastor, Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville

"In this day and age, we need more courageous visionaries who seek to release women in ministry while honoring the complementarian framework of God's Word. This is a helpful resource for all who wish to join in this pursuit."
Mary A. Kassian, author, Girls Gone Wise

"Women's Ministry is a biblically rich reflection of the authors' very thesis-when men and women humbly and joyfully complement each other's God-given roles and gifts, spiritual grace flows for the nurture of His Church."
Peter A. Lillback, President, Westminster Theological Seminary

"Finally, Ligon Duncan and Susan Hunt have given the church a clear theological framework from which to build an effective women's ministry."
Randy Stinson, Senior Vice President for Academic Administration and Provost, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
