Trending Faith: Who Leads in a Romantic Relationship?

College of Theology Dean Dr. Jason Hiles and GCU Pastor Tim Griffin sat down for this week’s Trending Faith to answer the question: “What does leadership look like in a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship?”

“The book of Proverbs ends on a very interesting passage about a very strong woman; she’s not strong in a masculine way, but in a feminine way,” Dr. Hiles said.

“I encourage my daughter [by saying], ‘Learn how to cultivate that strength within yourself and make sure you find a young man who will love that about you and give you the liberty and freedom to express that and to essentially complement who he is.’ Anyone who is afraid of that is not going to be a good leader or wise leader.”

About College of Theology

Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.
