The Women’s Ministry Committee of the PCA has the goal of encouraging church leadership to nurture and encourage women in their walk with Christ so that they have a deeper relationship in Christ. The PCA holds to a complementarian ministry philosophy, and we seek to serve the churches who live out this complementarian philosophy in a variety of ways.
With all this in mind, WMPCA is delighted to invite all men, women, elders, and minsters to this year’s WMPCA Online Conference - ‘Men and Women Working Together’.
When Adam and Eve were created, man and woman were both made in the image of God, both commissioned and sent out into the Garden to reflect Him to the world in perfect unity and partnership. Sin damaged relationships between men and women and they often now relate in fear and distrust and seeing the other as the enemy. In a post-Purity Culture world, what does it look like to be disciples of Jesus together and sent out as ambassadors of God's Kingdom? What does it look like to work alongside and with one another in perfect unity and partnership? Conference speakers and panellists will help us paint a picture for genuine gospel partnerships between men and women in the Presbyterian Church of Australia moving forward.
The conference will begin with an opening session thinking about how men and women can listen well to one another (James Snare). Next, we’ll hear from the scriptures on what it means for men and women to be part of the family of God and be brothers and sisters in Christ (Bronwyn Lea). Then we’ll learn about the lasting effects of the purity culture movement in evangelicalism and Australia and how that influences us still today. (Devi Abraham) Finally we’ll host a panel discussion amongst some current and past members of the PCA on some of the ideas we’ll be hearing at the conference (John McClean, Rebekah Earnshaw, Robyn Bain, Kylie Evans).

Please note that the conference committee have aimed to keep the cost as low as possible. The cost is $15 per screen, so where churches gather men and women together, the cost will be insignificant.
