(ChurchLeaders) Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) president and The Summit Church pastor J.D. Greear has called Saddleback Church’s support for the ordination of women “disappointing.” On his blog, Greear explained why and shared a paper detailing his own church’s position on the topic.
“The Summit Church is unashamedly and uncompromisingly complementarian,” said J.D. Greear in a post on his blog. “What’s more, we consider the complementarian position not merely a box to be checked, but rather a biblical truth to be celebrated.”
“While I have long respected Saddleback’s ministry impact and heart for getting the gospel to the nations,” said Greear, “I disagree with their decision to take this step, and would even say I find it disappointing.”
