Introducing Baptist Women for Equality


Shirley Taylor, formerly an employee of BGCT, is now leading a new organization of Baptist Women who are committed to promoting women in leadership roles within Baptist life.

Baptist Women for Equality advocate for women deacons and women pastors in Baptist churches. They just published their first newsletter, "An Open Letter to Baptists" with brief discussions of scripture and the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message.

Kudos to Shirley and the other Baptist Women in her organization. Mainstream Baptists will want to become familiar with their work.
