Personal Preaching Experiences
Thank you for taking time for this interview! I am continuing to collect data for my Directed Study at Duke Divinity School about preaching and bodies. I am thrilled and honored to be presenting my research at the RCWMS Preaching Festival in the Fall of 2018.

Let me be quite clear-- preaching and the experience of women in ministry is SO MUCH MORE than appearances and commentary. The goal of this survey is to acquire data about the ways that "superficial" issues disproportionately affect women over men in ministry.

Your experiences are so valued and your identity will be kept confidential in my statistical reporting.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions, comments, concerns, or personal stories that you would like me to include in my study --
