And Your Daughters Will ProphesyFor many years, the Conejo Church has shared an ongoing journey of discernment. The journey has to do with seeking to better understand what God wants from us and how we may best use our gifts to honor and serve God. Over the years, that journey has included the fuller inclusion of the gifts of our Christian sisters in our worship assemblies. While not without its growing pains, we believe our incorporation of these gifts has enriched and blessed our community life tremendously. Our sisters have joined in leading our worship, offering prayers, reading scripture, sharing communion meditations, giving mission reports, and teaching adult Bible classes. As we continue our journey, we think that now is an appropriate time to include the gifts of our sisters in the ministry of preaching.
We believe there is ample biblical and theological warrant for such a move. There are a number of biblical texts that exhort believers to use their spiritual gifts to edify the church through preaching or teaching. None of the New Testament lists of spiritual gifts are gender specific and three of these lists (1 Cor. 12, Rom. 12, Eph. 4) include the gifts of prophecy or preaching.
