Headship, Authority, and Gender Roles

On this special edition of the Restoration Church Podcast, we’ll be looking at the issues surrounding headship, authority, and gender roles as taught in the New Testament. This is a supplemental study to our current series, “ONE”, where we are learning from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.

In this episode, Matt has a conversation with an active member of Restoration Church, Dave Leigh. Dave is a retired pastor, author and writer, who holds an MA in Theological Studies from Wheaton College. He has served in a number of house churches and legacy churches, and is along-time advocate of biblical equality in the church, family and society. He lives in the Chicago suburbs with his lovely wife, Dana, and is a proud “grampy” to three amazing grandchilden.

One New Humanity // Ephesians 2:11-3:13

God’s plan is to unite and restore everyone, everywhere back to Himself, and it’s His intention to use the church to display that plan. But will we join Him?

Questions for Reflection:

  1. Where has the church failed to demonstrate this vision of a restored and unified humanity in Christ?
  2. How can the church move forward in living out its calling and purpose?
  3. What do you believe your role should be in participating in God’s plan to unite and restore everyone, everywhere back to Him?

One Lord // Ephesians 1:15-23

This week we uncover the story of an unstoppable movement grounded in love and its sovereign leader who’s head can’t be severed. This isn’t the tagline for a new movie about a geopolitical uprising, but the very real Kingdom of God and its King who we joyfully serve.

Reflection Questions:

  1. What helped you?
  2. What challenged you?
  3. What implications does this teaching have on my life?
