It hurts to be excluded
In April a T4G "Together for the Gospel" conference was held in Louisville. 2000 Christian leaders attended who have a legitimate heart to see the gospel of Jesus Christ spread throughout the world. But the question is, what kind of gospel? Women were excluded. Sixty of them happened to register before the exclusion of women was pronounced and they were asked to give up their registrations so men could take their places. The message... women are excluded from carrying the gospel. This is not the true gospel. Check out Psalms 68:11 in the New American Standard Version, "The Lord gives the command; The women who proclaim the good tidings are a great host."
