Our goal is to foster an environment of comfort and encouragement in confessional theology, spiritual growth, and education in the history of the church that is tailored to the needs of women.

The Jagged Word
The Jagged Word was born out of a general distrust of bureaucracy and an unreasonable desire to make pietists uncomfortable. Other groups that offer insight and commentary on the church and our world seem to default to positions driven by fear that limits our conversation and participation. The academics fear the institutes of higher learning that employ them, driving their honest conversations behind closed doors. Our pastors fear reprisals from the various subgroups with which they’ve aligned themselves (contemporary, traditional, missional, confessional, etc.); they fear being alone and therefore toe the party line. In opposition to all of this, The Jagged Word is focusing on the freedom found in Christ crucified for us. Our concern isn’t with toeing the line or satisfying those locked away in the ivory towers. We are only interested in the proclamation of freedom in Christ alone. So whether we are discussing generational distinctions or political positions or church fellowship matters, the end we drive toward and from which we are given the strength to begin, is a Word that kills and makes alive.
