WHO WE ARE

We are Australian Christians who believe that God’s word teaches the equal partnership of men and women

We believe both men and women are gifted for service. Our workplaces, churches, and families will only flourish when women and men are given equal opportunities to serve, based on their gifts, not their gender.
