Men and Women in Christ

We tackle an important question for our culture and our churches: What does the Bible teach about how men and women should relate to each other?  Author and teacher Elyse Fitzpatrick joins Chris to unwrap a Gospel-shaped perspective on the value of men and women while honoring our unique distinctives.  Learn how we can serve together as allies in the mission of God!
