Rob Dixon: Together in Ministry

"For centuries, the church has been trying to fulfill the Great Commission with half of the team largely relegated to the bench. Let's try something different." — Dr. Rob Dixon

How can women and men flourish in their working relationships? Join our conversation with Rob Dixon about his forthcoming book on mixed gender ministry partnerships.

Let me invite you into a conversation I had with Dr. Rob Dixon, author of the forthcoming book Together in Ministry: Women and Men in Flourishing Partnerships. Rob's book puts forth a bold vision for mixed gender ministry partnerships that I found deeply moving. Through his research, Rob uncovers a comprehensive model for flourishing partnerships that inspires action. I’m still wrestling with it, honestly, and wondering how to create space for more flourishing in the partnerships in my own church community and work space. It’s just the kind of good work that a book can do in a person and I’m so glad that Rob is sharing this book — and this vision — with the world. So have a listen! We’re so glad you’re here.
