"Women in Church History and Theology" at the Olivet Doctoral Colloquium
November 05, 2017 - November 05, 2017

Dr. Mimi Haddad will travel to Olivet Theological College in November to teach her course, "Women in Church History and Theology," which covers the unique contributions women have made to the church from the first century through the late 20th century. Such advances usually happened despite official impediments to women’s spiritual leadership and active ministry.  The course highlights conflicts women faced raised by doctrine, traditions, and practices of the church and as well as issues of ethnic and racial bias.

As the 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.

Women in History and Theology: Olivet University
November 05, 2017 - November 09, 2017

This course explores 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 the 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.

Cultivating Oneness in Christ: Biblical Truth about Equality for Women and Men in the Home, Church and Community
September 19, 2017 - September 21, 2017

On September 20-22, Ekklesia Foundation for Gender Education will host a three day international conference in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania with faith leaders and delegates from across East Africa on the theme, “Cultivating Oneness in Christ: Biblical Truth about Equality for Women and Men in the Home, Church and Community.”

This conference will provide opportunity for faith leaders, students, researchers, faith based project leaders to cultivate basic theological and biblical truth about equality for women and men. It will promote the essence of equal worth, dignity, respect and mutual love for men and women for a gift based leadership and equal participation in decision making in the home, church, and society.

This event will explore harmful religious and cultural gender norms that places men above women and distort the “Imago Dei” of the female creation against the plan and will of God. Patriarchal worldview is perpetuated by many churches and communities around the world that teaches and believes in male dominance as God’s design for human beings and is the main cause for poverty in Africa resulting into—devaluation and violence against women and girls based of gender.

This event, “Cultivating Oneness in Christ”  is based on Romans 12:1-2, “Therefore, I urge you brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is the true worship. Do not conform to the patterns pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind . . . ”
