Clark, 2006), and Paul and Gender: Reclaiming the Apostle’s Vision for Men and Women in Christ (Baker Academic, 2016) and has been part of an urban mission to the inner city in Denver for more than twenty years. For the last five years, she has also been involved in urban ministry in the Greater Toronto area.

Cindy lectures widely for academic, popular and church audiences on gender and faith. She has mentored more than 50 graduate students, some of whom write and speak for CBE. Cindy serves on the ETS Gender and Evangelicals study group; the Regional ETS of Ontario and Quebec and the former Front Range CBE chapter in Denver.

In recognition of her achievements, CBE awarded her a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2017.

CBE Endorsement: I have supported CBE since it was established in 1988. My involvement in CBE and CBE leadership played a crucial role in recognizing my call to become a professor of New Testament and to teach in a seminary. I endorse CBE’s continued growth in vision and influence in broader arenas including global issues.

Cynthia Long Westfall serves on CBE’s Board of Reference
