Acts 29: Churches Planting Churches

Church plants are filled with godly women who co-labor with their Christian brothers to proclaim the name of Jesus. They love the Lord and magnify him in their homes, neighborhoods, and workplaces. As pastors, we’re blessed to have them as partners in our gospel endeavors.

Our enemy, however, seeks to destroy these women. They’re bombarded daily with temptations and pressures of unrealistic expectations. It’s crucial for our churches to be havens for gospel truth, equipping women to resist the lures of temporary joy offered by the world, and, instead, to rest in the lasting joy found only through Christ. We should encourage women’s ministry leaders and exhort our fellow brothers to treasure the female theologians among us.

On the podcast today to help us think through women’s ministry is Jen Oshman. Jen is a wife, mom, writer, and podcaster, and has served as a missionary and pastor’s wife for two decades on three continents. She and her husband, Mark, reside in Colorado with their four daughters. Mark is the planting pastor, and Jen is the women’s ministry coordinator at Redemption Parker Church.
