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.

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.

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.

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.

The web has created enormous capacity for dialogue yet research shows most online communities reinforce stereotypes. How can the body of Christ challenge the devaluation of people based on gender and skin color?

Effortlessly and without much explanation, Jesus welcomed the marginalized living on edges of his culture. His welcome was a great annoyance to his community, and even to his disciples. Yet, Scripture makes clear that the outsiders, denied dignity and welcome, were those Christ intentionally pursued.
