Dora Dueck’s new book, On Holy Ground: stories by and about women in ministry leadership in the Mennonite Brethren Church, with contributions by Carol Penner and Sherri Guenther Trautwein, will be released in May 2022.

“This book is an edited collection of 15 essays of life-writing from 15 women Mennonite Brethren Church leaders (pastors and ministers), each telling her own story of ministry calling and of service within the Mennonite Brethren Church (struggles, challenges, joys, etc.). It is only relatively recently that such roles have been open to women in the Mennonite Brethren Church.”

The book pairs well with Women in Ministry Leadership: The Journey of the Mennonite Brethren, 1954-2010, by Doug Heidebrecht. You can read Pastor Sherri’s review here.
