Biblical Headship and Its Missiological Implications

Scott Callaham joins Alex and Scott to discuss Scripture’s view of men’s and women’s roles in ministry.

In this thought-provoking episode, we sit down with Dr. Scott Callaham, Dean of the Institute of Public Theology, to explore the biblical concept of headship and its far-reaching implications for missions. Dr. Callaham brings a wealth of experience from his roles as a pastor, chaplain, cross-cultural international missionary, conference speaker, Bible translator, and seminary professor. We delve into the biblical foundations supporting male leadership in missions, the role of women in missionary support roles, the theological implications of being male and female, and the critical issue of biblical eldership in missions.
