Willow Creek Promotes Egalitarianism by Announcing Co-Ed Pastors
On Saturday, October 14, 2017, Bill Hybels founder of Willow Creek Community Church announced that following his departure in October 2018 he will be replaced by co-ed pastors. Willow Creek has named its current executive pastrix Heather Larson and teaching pastor Steve Carter.
“When we saw this shaping up, we had to ask ourselves, ‘Can our congregation have a lead pastor that’s a woman? …. And because this is a deeply held value in our church, we said, ‘No problem.’ ”
When this troubling transition takes place, this will make Willow Creek one of the largest churches in America with a woman in lead pastrix position. It also should be pointed out that Willow Creek will be the only major “evangelical” megachurch with male-female lead pastors who are not married.
For years it has been clear that Willow Creek and Bill Hybels has had very little regard for Scripture or the biblical teaching in general or its proper context. This latest announcement by Bill Hybels and the Willow Creek Association proves only how depraved and filled with hate their hearts are towards God of the Bible. Hybels and Willow Creek are bent on promoting Egalitarianism and the tearing down of the biblical outline outlined in Scripture. Willow Creek is undoubtedly anti-Complementarian. Scripture is clear in 1 Timothy 2:11-14, 1 Timothy 3:1-13 and Titus 1:6-9 that women are not to be in the position of pastor anywhere in the church.
