Church and Organization Memberships

CBE’s church and organization membership program is designed for churches, seminaries, schools, and other organizations committed to biblical gender equality. We welcome church and organization members who support CBE’s Statement of Faith and Core Values.

A CBE membership provides you with publications, books, opportunities to host CBE speakers, and discounted conference registrations that grow egalitarian momentum in your church or organization.

Is your church or organization still exploring biblical gender equality? Consider subscribing to CBE’s journals and receive CBE’s award-winning publications to inspire your church or organization members and staff!

Would it be beneficial for my college or seminary to join CBE?

Yes! Interest in biblical gender equality has never been higher on college and seminary campuses. A CBE membership builds egalitarian momentum among new and current students, staff, and faculty.

Fuller Seminary, a CBE member, features this video shown at CBE’s 2011 conference in Seattle to communicate their full support for women in ministry.

Dr. Paul Chilcote of Asbury Theological Seminary discusses how CBE membership has benefitted his former institution, Ashland Theological Seminary, in this article (PDF).

Can my institution join as an organizational member if our library already subscribes?

If your library already subscribes to our journals, our membership department will take the cost of your subscription off the cost of your church and organization membership.

This discount will apply each year you renew your membership, providing that your subscription remains current. Be sure to list the name of your institution’s library on your membership application.

Please note this option is not available for organizations joining at the $150 level.
