Creating Evangelical Egalitarian Scholarship and Scholars

How do we understand evangelical egalitarian scholarship and scholars? The idea includes interdependent Christian leaders in community serving Jesus while using the spiritual and natural gifts given each by God. We are envisioning something more than simply “Let the women participate,” or the opposite extreme: women now being the hierarchical leaders instead of men. We want to discuss creating opportunities for others, especially those underrepresented in the academy, so that women and men serve equally, interdependently, each leading by God’s gifting. This workshop will discuss some of the biblical principles important for ministry and present some examples, as well as include a practical brainstorming session.
