Building God’s Church Together Bible Study

A four-session Bible study on God’s vision for flourishing ministry partnerships between men and women

This Bible study explores God’s biblical vision for the relationship between men and women. Over the course of four sessions, you’ll journey toward healthy, Christ-centered partnership between men and women in both ministry and life outside the church.

The Bible study can be used in congregations, small groups, and even individual devotional time. Enter your email below to receive a free downloadable copy of the Bible study and workbook, complete with suggested session outlines and room for note taking. You’ll also receive a list of supplemental resources you can use to go deeper after you finish the Bible study. Hard copies are also available to members of the Reformed Church in America for the cost of postage.

The Bible study was put together as part of a larger ministry effort led by the Reformed Church in America Women’s Transformation and Leadership team.

Why Building God’s Church Together?

God calls both men and women to serve in the church. Building God’s Church Together 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 learning process was created by the Reformed Church in America’s Women’s Transformation and Leadership initiative and is open to lay leaders, elders and deacons, and pastors.
