One of the greatest challenges in Kenya is the resurgence of negative aspects of African cultural practices that are oppressive to women, such as female genital mutilation and polygamy. These are resurging because the Christian world-view has not taken root and Christian identity is not well defined.
While many Christians today believe women were created to be submissive to men, history tells another story. Created as strong rescue for man (Genesis 2:18), women have served the church as martyrs, missionaries, teachers and leaders revealing the gospel in places men feared to go. This workshop will consider the pioneering leadership of women on every continent, from the early church to the modern era.
