Leadership Initiative

What's next on our
Leadership Initiative journey ...

On May 5 th , we are going to have the next event in our Leadership Initiative journey during the Sunday Morning service. We hope that you will join us for this Sunday service as Brock Argue, the chairman of our elder’s board, helps us to understand both of these roles as our discussion that morning will be "Understanding Both Sides." We will also be presenting the official wording of the motion to be voted on at our AGM on June 2nd.

Church leadership is about serving others in accordance with Christ's interests so that they can see and accomplish God's purpose for them in the world. A church leader needs qualities that influence and morally support the congregation, the volunteers, and others within the community.

Rockyview Alliance Church is entering a season of exploring the role of women in leadership.

Complementarianism and egalitarianism are theological views on the relationship between men and women, especially in marriage and in ministry.

 

Complementarianism stresses that although men and women are equal in personhood, they are created for different roles.

 

Egalitarianism also agrees that men and women are equal in personhood but holds that there are no gender-based limitations on the roles of men and women.

This is an important decision in the life of Rockyview and one that requires everyone to make an informed decision. The Board encourages you to engage in the process of learning, prayer, and discerning the Holy Spirit’s guidance in this matter. Below you will find resources (books, videos, articles) to aid in learning about the different perspectives on this issue as well as a timeline of events, including guest speakers, congregational meetings, and when we’ll be voting on Rockyview’s leadership initiative.
We look forward to engaging in this process with you.

Suggested Resources

We encourage you to engage with material that represents both perspectives (complementary and egalitarian) by reading or listening to at least one resource from each perspective. Rockyview has copies of many of these titles available to sign out from our book table on most Sunday mornings.
