2016 Mission Leaders Conference

Since the fall, division and violence has marked all humanity, but has especially manifested in division between the male and female genders. In this 40-minute video from the 2016 Missio Nexus Mission Leaders Conference, Carolyn Custis James opens the book of Ruth and discusses the powerful possibilities of what can happen when men and women unite in obedience to God for the Kingdom.
