On Holy Ground grew out of a wish to set the lived experience of women alongside — or within — the institutional history of women in leadership ministry among Mennonite Brethren, as recently written by Doug Heidebrecht in Women in Ministry Leadership: The Journey of the Mennonite Brethren, 1954-2010. His excellent narrative of denominational meetings, motions, and debates on the subject is invaluable, but it was real women who were under the spotlight during all that discussion and it’s the voices of real women who need to be on record as well with their recollections of this history.

In this book, we hear some of those voices, telling their compelling stories.

"Openings to women in ministry: are they fault lines or are they rivers in the desert, God’s new thing amongst us?” - Cheryl Pauls, President, Canadian Mennonite University

”This ’small-but-mighty’ volume fills a needed gap because it explores the personal experiences of women who have done the hard work of leadership in the context of the local church and MB family during a time when they were a minority voice.” - Brad Sumner, Pastor, Jericho Ridge Community Church

Review: MB leaders order books reprinted with three pages removed: Deleted section of book on women in ministry dealt with LGBTQ inclusion - John Longhurst, Anabaptist World
