Put More Women in the Pulpit

CBE believes that women are empowered by God to lead, teach, and preach. We also know that answering God’s call to lead isn’t always easy. That’s why we’re determined to help more women reach the pulpit with the Alvera Mickelsen Memorial Scholarship. So far, CBE has awarded $66,000 to eleven women in seminary. This year, CBE is hoping to award even more.

Invest in Girls

A UNESCO report estimates that 1 in 10 girls in Sub-Saharan Africa miss school when they have their period. This means girls can miss up to 20% of the school year merely because they lack sanitary products. In addition to this educational gap, girls also face restrictive beliefs and attitudes that the church often perpetuates.

Yet educated girls have more resilience and confidence to shape their own lives and contribute to their communities. CBE’s ministry partners in Kenya, Uganda, and Zimbabwe are breaking down barriers that keep girls from learning and achieving their dreams. You can stand with them as they counter religious and cultural stigmas, teach that girls and boys deserve equal love and respect, and provide reusable sanitary pad kits.
