A Word from Kadi:

Praise for Developing Female Leaders


"Kadi Cole breaks the mold with a balanced, vulnerable, and insightful primer on what it takes to both develop and unleash the leadership potential of the women in our churches no matter where you land on the egalitarian/complementarian theological debate and continuum. This is a book you not only need to read - you need to mark it up as well."

-Larry Osborne, Pastor and Author, North Coast Church

"How I wish this book had been available decades ago when I began to lead in the local church! Kadi Cole writes from her personal experience and extensive research, offering a way forward to maximize the way we develop, deploy, and value women leaders. I highly recommend this tool for church leaders who know we can do better, who believe that God's best is for men and women to serve with mutual respect in healthy cultures where all of us can thrive."  

-Nancy Beach , Leadership Coach, Slingshot Group and Author of Gifted to Lead: The Art of Leading as a Woman in the Church

"In Developing Female Leaders, Kadi Cole gives leaders a virtual masterclass on women in leadership. This is a must-read for both men and women. Kadi dives into some of the most sensitive issues leaders face about men and women in the workplace with wisdom, insight, clarity and accuracy. You'll find this book tremendously thoughtful, practical and helpful." 

-Carey Nieuwhof, Founding Pastor, Connexus Church and author of Didn't See It Coming

"The church has never needed women leaders more than today. Kadi Cole is bringing wise guidance to a crucial area."

-John Ortberg, Senior Pastor of Menlo Church & Author of Eternity is Now in Session

"Developing Female Laders is THE book for this time for all leaders. Practical, well researched, honestly facing the nuances, and written in a compelling and powerful style that if followed will define the church of the future."  

-Jo Anne Lyon, Ambassador General Superintendent Emerita for the Wesleyan Church

"Kadi's life, her stories, and the stories of others she has gathered will inspire you. I pray God will open all our eyes to see His heart for all people."  

-Pastor Joel A'Bell, Former Lead Pastor, Hillsong Church Australia
