Headship in the Church:
Is Not What You Think

(Long Course)

Course Description:

Society is embroiled in a version of identity politics that elevates women and scapegoats men.  Imbalances of power have recently given way to cultural convulsions that have literally redefined what it means to be male and female.  Gender wars have broadened and over time given way to gender ideology and critical race theory.  Genderism, feminism, racism have all become big issues in the church.   Meanwhile, most churches are overlooking the doctrine that deals with relationships at a theological level.  Headship is part of the gospel.  Headship is about right relationships.  Headship sets Christianity apart from every other religion in the world.  In this extended course, students study the practicality of the most undeveloped principle of ecclesiology:  headship!

Key Questions To Be Explored:

  • What is headship?

  • What does headship have to do with feminism, racism, and genderism?

  • What does it mean to grow into Christ, our Head?

  • How can biblical headship offer healing to society?

  • How does headship distinguish Christianity from every other religion?
