‘I understood the need for women’s leadership – and changed the mind of my bishop!’

The Revd Haroon Ajmal, of Sialkot Diocese in the Church of Pakistan, describes how training with the USPG-supported Asian Theological Academy (ATA) last year has transformed his work as a pastor.

As a result of my time at ATA I now have new goals having started to understand about issues such as the need for women’s leadership in the church.

In Pakistan, we largely ignore women in terms of leadership and fellowship, but ATA gave me a vision that women can also work for Christ.

This is why I asked my bishop to allow Annam to go to seminary. I am so happy that he agreed. And now Annam is the first woman ever from Sialkot Diocese to attend the seminary. She begins in April 2017 and will train for three years.
