Not Without a Struggle | Leadership Development for African American Women in Ministry, Revised & Updated (McKenzie)


The groundbreaking best-seller from The Pilgrim Press, Not Without a Struggle: Leadership Development for African American Women in Ministry, returns with an updated introduction, epilogue and Vashti M. McKenzie’s life-changing 10 Commandments for African-American Women in Ministry. Written because McKenzie felt like a passenger on a boat without an oar when she began in ministry, Not Without a Struggle has helped women of all races and ethnicities to answer God’s call in their lives. Building models of ministry that promote fellowship and support, McKenzie forges a new partnership among men and women in ministry. This book provides a new generation of clergywomen something to hold onto as they prepare for God’s work.
