Building God's Church Together


How do we raise both/and leaders in an either/or world?

God calls both men and women to serve in the church. Discover how to create a trusting and healthy ministry environment where men and women can serve together. Building God’s Church Together is a process open to lay leaders, elders and deacons, and pastors.

This learning process is designed to help congregations and leaders create thriving ministry environments where both women and men are encouraged to embrace their gifts and develop healthy, flourishing ministry partnerships. This process includes short-term and deeper-dive opportunities for congregations, leaders, and regional or classis groups:

Bible study
Curated resource list
Connection events
Learning communities
Mini leadership collaboratives

To learn more about customizing this process for your context, contact Rev. Liz Testa at
