The role of women in pastoral leadership: a discovery project to measure the knowledge and attitudes of parishioners of the Second Community Church regarding women in leadership roles
Charlene Elizabeth Watkins
This project developed and utilized the Likert-Questionnaire to discover the knowledge and attitudes of the parishioners of the Second Community Church, Columbus, Ohio, toward women in pastoral leadership roles. This survey required a self examination in this area. Thirty volunteers from the membership took the survey and the findings are documented accordingly. It is significant to note the voice from the women, which represented the majority of the participants, are as unsupportive as men regarding women in leadership roles. Further findings revealed the knowledge of both groups were uncertain concerning the appropriate biblical interpretation of scripture supporting this issue.
