“Guiding women to consider that God has called and gifted them to lead in various capacities, Emily Dean offers biblical wisdom for those seeking to steward their influence well. Women Leading Well reminds me that leadership is chiefly about loving God, loving others, and abiding in Christ to accomplish the task.”
—Julia Higgins, Empowered and Equipped and assistant professor of ministry to women, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Emily has captured both the unique ways God calls women to influence others, whether you are in a ministry setting, the marketplace, or in your home. The pages of this book will provide the handles you need to move forward and will give you the scriptural basis to lead with boldness and dependence on the God who created you for this task.”

I found this book to be straight forward, yet deep and meaningful. A beautiful and timely work for all women.”
—Andrea Lennon, women’s ministry specialist, Arkansas Baptist State Convention

“Leadership knows no gender. The Lord Jesus calls and equips women for ministry leadership in his church. How, then, should they lead? Emily Dean answers that question skillfully, writing from a place of biblical wisdom and personal experience. I was instructed, humbled, encouraged, and equipped by Women Leading Well. A valuable go-to resource for leadership training, and one that I’ll be using and recommending to others.”
—Eric Schumacher, associate pastor, Grand Avenue Baptist Church, Ames, Iowa

“Emily Dean brings out treasures both old and new in this work. Women Leading Well first unfolds the necessary doctrines of universal priesthood, ministerial calling, and spiritual gifts through careful theological exegesis of Scripture. But the most enlightening part of this fine guidebook appears with her wise practical advice. Our Lord’s churches will thrive for God’s glory as they learn to encourage their leadership.”
—Malcolm B. Yarnell III, research professor of theology, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
