2018 International Conference

Join us in Helsinki, Finland, on August 34, 2018!

Join CBE International in Helsinki, Finland August 3-4 for "Created for Partnership," an international conference hosted by RaTas (Christians for Equality), in partnership with CBE International.

Why Finland?
While Finland has a reputation as a world leader in gender equality, the story is different inside Finland's evangelical churches. A small but influential minority claiming to represent “true” biblical Christianity promotes male-only leadership and patriarchal gender roles in churches throughout the country. This is crippling the advancement of the gospel in this mostly secular country.

Join CBE in Finland this summer and connect with Christians from around the globe, learn how to advocate for biblical gender equality in your own church, and be a catalyst for egalitarian momentum in Finland and beyond! Help unleash the full power of the gospel!

“Created for Partnership” is based on Genesis 1:27

"So God created mankind in his own image,
    in the image of God he created them;
    male and female he created them."

Join us in Helsinki, Finland, on August 3–4, 2018!
