PD Are You With Me?

And oh YES she is! I am thrilled to announce the launching of a brand new venture and well, ministry. This was conceived in both of us separately and then birthed through prayer, confirmation, and with great passion.

I am so honored and excited to partner with a truly amazing woman of God who is confident and comfortable in her calling, co-founder of Equal Time, Rev. Deanna Shrodes. Got you curious yet? Read below for a great launch story about Equal Time written by Deanna and stop by soon!

Today is National Women's Equality Day! As Christians, and particularly as Assemblies of God believers, we celebrate women! Our fellowship officially holds an egalitarian view, meaning that we believe in the Biblical equality of women. The Assemblies of God celebrates and encourages women in leadership. This is just one great facet of this incredible group of believers of which we are a part.

In fact, our new superintendent-elect of the Assemblies of God, Rev. George O. Wood, has done some extensive Biblical research and much writing and speaking on this issue and is a passionate advocate for the equality of women. To read one of his sermons on this topic, go here.

Pastor Deanna has co-launched a new multi-writer blog along with her long time friend, Pastor Tara Sloan, another Assemblies of God pastor/pastor's wife from Chicago, IL. This blog is called "Equal Time" and will feature thought provoking writings from some of the best egalitarian writers today. They have chosen to launch this blog today, August 26 on the historic day of National Women's Equality day. To visit this blog go to Equal Time

It is our prayer that you will find Equal Time to be encouraging, empowering and thought provoking, not only for women, but for men too. Because equality for women is not just a women's issue...much like racial equality, it is all of our concern. We hope you stop by soon and visit us at Equal Time.
