Re: “The Vintage church in Raleigh attracts young college students, but does its anti-women stance collide with its public image?

I am a single professional Duke educated woman who grew up in a home that disrespected women. As one who has lived with gendered oppression, I respectfully but strongly submit that Vintage is not oppressive to me. It has been beautiful and sweet and lifts up Jesus in a life -giving way to me. I feel a sense of sisterhood with anyone who is oppressed and with women from a wide variety of backgrounds. I personally have felt very valued and honored as a woman at Vintage. When I have talked to the pastors about revitalizing the women's ministry, they have said, "We value your opinion and your help. What are your dreams? How would you like to lead? Please tell us any way we can resource you as a church." It's easy to criticize a church as an institution. It's difficult to offer constructive solutions and truly care for people like Jesus in a way that you would lay down your life for them. I personally welcome women to Vintage and will do my best to honor and love and respect and serve those who come through the doors - the author of this article included. God bless you.
