Churches and Organizations
The church and organizational membership is designed for churches and groups such as seminaries, schools, and non-profit organizations interested in biblical equality.
A CBE membership provides you with publications, books, opportunities to host CBE speakers, and discounted conference registrations to equip and empower the egalitarian leadership of your organization.
Whether your church or organization is exploring biblical equality or is already committed to it, we would love to walk alongside you, providing resources and support.

Would it be beneficial for my college or seminary to join CBE?
Yes! Interest in biblical equality has exploded on college and seminary campuses. We would love to provide resources to your eager faculty, staff, and students. In addition, your school's membership to CBE provides an opportunity to send a strong message to potential students, staff, and faculty that they will be a welcome and valued part of your academic community.
Check out this video from CBE member Fuller Seminary, which they created to show at CBE's 2011 conference in Seattle and are using on their website to communicate full support for women in ministry.
Also, view this article (PDF) by Ashland Seminary faculty member Dr. Paul Chilcote on how CBE membership has benefitted his seminary.
Can my institution join as an organizational member if our library already subscribes?
If your library already subscribes to our journals, our membership department will take the cost of your subscription off the cost of your organizational membership.
This discount will apply each year you renew your membership, providing that your subscription remains current. Be sure to list the name of your institution's library on your membership application.
Please note this option is not available for organizations joining at the $55 level.
