Mimi led a meeting for the Pentecostal Network of Pastors in Uganda on “Q & A on Gender, Bible Translation and Women Pastors.” CBE has been leading monthly meetings with the Pentecostal Network of Pastors in Uganda, a consortium of male and female pastors interested in learning more about CBE’s egalitarian reading of Scripture. Exploring different themes each month, Mimi took questions from over 100 pastors gathered by Skype. Many of these pastors also joined CBE for a two day conference led by CBE’s partner—EFOGE.

Women’s Leadership: Following the Teachings and Examples of Paul
July 21, 2017 - July 21, 2017

The apostle Paul has been the most frequently cited authority restricting women from shared leadership not only in ministry but also in marriage and service to the world. Those who rely on Paul in challenging women’s equal voice and agency often overlook not only the many examples of women leaders building the church beside Paul but also his theological emphasis on newness of life in Christ. This workshop at CBE's 2017 international Conference, "Mutual By Design" will show how 1 Timothy 2:11-15 and 1 Corinthians 14: 34-35 are eddies off the stream of Paul’s egalitarian teachings and practices.

About the Conference

Across the globe, women and girls suffer oppression because they are considered less valuable than men. CBE's international conference, "Mutual by Design" proclaimed a better way, promoting a biblical view of gender and Christian leadership and showing how the family of God is to function in a community that places no gender-based limits on Christian service.

“Mutual by Design” brought together leading scholars, pastors, activists, and NGO leaders from around the world to promote the biblical vision of women and men co-leading and co-serving in the church, home, and community.

  • How do we sustain and strengthen evidence-based and people-centered health systems?
