WOMEN AND CHURCH LEADERSHIP REVISED: THE IMPLICATIONS OF A MISSIONAL ECCLESIOLOGY AND A THEOLOGICAL ANTHROPOLOGY

AMJ Leene, H J Hendriks

Abstract



The position of women in church leadership positions is still a burning issue. A key aspect
of the issue is sexual identity and its implication for women in church leadership structures.
Changing contexts and shifting paradigms have led, amongst others, to a rediscovery of the
role of the Trinity. This in turn led to new perspectives on ecclesiology, i.e. a missional
ecclesiology, as well as new perspectives on a theological anthropology. The unity and
diversity in the Trinity form the basis of human identity irrespective of sexuality. As such
the church offices are understood in the light of the missio Dei and need both men and women in leadership.
