Abstract
Ministry leaders have not always valued the contributions of women, and this research project poses the question: why not? This qualitative research project evaluated selected factors that are associated with the contributions of women being valued by leaders of parachurch ministries, including how theological views of headship and cultural views of femininity are associated with the valuing of women's contributions. The qualitative research for this project was conducted through in-depth interviews in three parachurch ministry settings. This report discussed the relationship of the interview answers to these hypotheses, the unexpected themes that surfaced in the interviews, suggestions to parachurch ministries, and suggestions for further research.
