Episode 04 | Women in Leadership: Craig Flack

What pastor has a former life in stand-up comedy, challenges the status quo on women in leadership, and shares about some serious zipper snafoos he's run into while preaching? This guy. 

On this episode with pastor Craig Flack you will definitely find a good bit of circus shenanigans and a great deal of thought regarding women leading in the church context. Which is a perfect combo when it comes to The Big Top.

During the show Lori, Amy, and Craig reference an article titled, "Why Women Can't Lead In Your Church" by Geoff Surratt. Using this article as a springboard, they hit Craig's personal experiences, some theology, and some fantastic challenges Craig has to male pastors. Not to mention the importance of Craig's pinewood derby trophies that he is supremely proud of. We've got all kinds of important things you are not going to want to miss! Enjoy the show!
