“Is an Omni-Male Deity the God of Scripture?”
April 14, 2016 - April 14, 2016

Join Mimi Haddad at the Denver Seminary for a complimentary lunch and a lecture on "Is an Omni-Male Deity the God of Scripture?" in the Executive Board Room, Anita Graber Building. 

Throughout history, Christians have be swayed by philosophical currents that impute masculine gender as part of God’s being. More recently, evangelicals have argued for the “masculine feel” of Christianity—a current that informs and influences the mission of the church today. This lecture will consider these forces and its impact.

Women in Church History and Theology
April 14, 2016 - May 13, 2016

Fuller Theological Seminary, Colorado Springs will host
CH575:  WOMEN IN CHURCH HISTORY AND THEOLOGY taught by Dr. Mimi Haddad

This course is an introduction to the leadership, theological contributions and experiences of women from the Old Testament period through the twentieth century. In each era, we will also consider the historical, theological and philosophical assumptions and events that supported, or more often, limited the fullest participation of women’s gifts and leadership in church and religious life. As church continues to consider the scope of service and leadership open to women in the church and marriage, this course will explore the significance gender has played in shaping theology, ministry and Christian life. Readings, class discussion, multi-media and assignments will enable students to critique the significance of gender in the life of the church today.

The course will be taught over 3 weekends: April 15-16, April 29-30, May 13-14. Classes will be held Fridays, 6pm - 9pm, Saturdays 8am-4pm. To register, see http://fuller.edu/registrar/registration/

Dismantling Slavery, the Sex Industry, and the Subjugation of Women: An Evangelical Legacy
November 10, 2015 - November 10, 2015

CBE’s president, Dr. Mimi Haddad, will discuss how the early evangelicals were quintessential social reformers and we have them to thank for abolition and suffrage. After decades of exposing the sex industry, the early evangelicals believed that their efforts, though necessary, would inevitably fail without addressing the root causes that were continually overlooked. These Christians perceived an integral relationship—an inescapable link—between viewing females as inferior and their subsequent marginalization and abuse. This lecture will consider the history of the early evangelicals and their reforming work biblically and socially.

This event will start at 6:30pm and ends at 8:00pm.

Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary Chapel
November 04, 2015 - November 04, 2015

Mimi Haddad will speak twice at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary, her alma Mater.

At 11 am, Mimi Haddad will be presenting at the Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary Chapel: “Look Who’s Coming to Dinner: Outcasts, Dogs and Prostitutes.” Throughout Scripture, one cannot predict who will assume positions of leadership within God’s Covenant People. From Ruth, to Rahab, to the Egyptian Midwives in the Old Testament, to the Outcasts and Outliers in the New Testament. The members and leaders of God’s Covenant people defy cultural expectations.

Noon Lunch Forum: “Our Evangelical Heritage: When the Radicals were Theological Conservatives” The social and biblical reform of the early evangelicals was sweeping in its theological and social impact. We have them to thank for abolition and suffrage momentum. How their legacy might nourish our thinking today on serving the suffering globally.

Throughout the history, religion & philosophy are deemed groups of humanity as inferior to others based solely on their gender or ethnicity. This lecture will consider the challenge to human devaluation whereby women have been routinely marginalized and made vulnerable to abuse.
