A cartoon at ASBOJesus has prompted some interesting debate about the role of women in emerging church leadership.  The consensus is that the number of women in leadership of the emerging church is “criminally low”.  This made me reflect upon the people I know who are in leadership of various things that could be categorised ‘emerging church’.  Here are the statistics…

  • They are all between 20-40.
  • There is a 50:50 split male female.
  • They don’t have kids.
  • They are either single or in a relationship with someone else who is involved in EC leadership.

So what are the official statistics?  Has anyone done an EC census?
