CH575: Women in Church History and Theology
April 01, 2019 - June 14, 2019

Mimi Haddad will be teaching CH575 at Fuller Seminary this spring, from April 1 through June 14. The course format is Hybrid+, which combines online and on-campus learning. The on-campus portion will be held on Fuller's Houston campus May 6-10. 

This course is an introduction to the leadership, theological contributions, and experiences of women from the early church period through the twentieth century. In each era, we will also consider the historical, theological, and philosophical assumptions that supported, or more often, limited the fullest participation of women’s gifts and leadership in church and religious life. As Christians continue 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.

CH575 is only available to current Fuller master's students in the Schools of Theology or Intercultural Studies. To learn more about Fuller Seminary, click here

Urbana Student Missions Conference
December 27, 2018 - December 31, 2018

From the Urbana Website:

"Urbana is a catalytic event bringing together a diverse mix of college and graduate students, faculty, recent graduates, pastors, church and ministry leaders, missions organizations and schools.

God uses Urbana to reveal his glory and call generations to surrender to Christ’s lordship. Urbana is a sacred space where students find calling and joining the Lord’s global mission whether across campus, zip codes, or the world. During this five-day conference, participants engage in a kaleidoscope of experiences including 16,000-person worship sessions, Bible exposition, messages and seminars, manuscript Bible studies, testimonies from the global church, and prayer ministry.

Urbana’s first conference took place in 1946 in Toronto, Canada with 575 students. The conference’s director Stacey Woods envisioned it “as just the beginning of a mighty missionary movement…an instrument in God’s hands, not only as a home mission, preaching the Gospel to America’s college students, but also as…a pool of consecrated manpower for the evangelization of the world.” With total registration of 1,331 and 254 schools represented, the next conference in 1948 took place in Urbana-Champaign (hence the name Urbana). A tradition had begun.

Over the years, many notable speakers like Billy Graham, George Verwer, Elisabeth Elliot, John Stott, and Helen Roseveare have taught at what has become the largest student missions conference in North America. Since 2006, Urbana has taken place in St. Louis, MO. Urbana 18 will be the 25th Urbana Student Missions Conference."
