What are ways for women of color to engage their churches in meaningful conversation about gender equality? As many churches in immigrant communities and communities of color are struggling under injustices, women of color must work to carve out their own safe spaces for dealing with their marginalization inside and out of the church
From John Thompson. It is often supposed that traditional exegesis has been unremittingly patriarchal and therefore unfriendly to women's dignity, their mistreatment and marginalization, and their contributions to Christian ministry. This lecture covers an array of exegetical views expressed by Christian commentators of the ancient, medieval, and Reformation eras, and how their perspectives and concerns can be surprisingly similar to the concerns of feminist and womanist critics today.

The written word has long been a key player in advocacy. This has not changed, though the writing and publishing landscape has. This panel explores how egalitarian writers can effect change in a world saturated with content creators.
The Gospel of John contains some unique and well-known stories about women. Two features distinguish women in John. 1) they serve in the key Johannine role as witnesses 2) they are the recipients of some of Jesus' most important self-disclosures.
As God makes our ministries anew, it can be hard for women to navigate the gap between the here and not yet of gender equality in ministry. How do women practice self-care and how do we teach fellow ministry leaders to lean into the gap of support of women? The diversity of women and our experiences will be explored in this lecture.
What does it mean to become one in Christ? We will explore God's design for men and women from the original creation to the new creation to discover the mutuality he intends for us as Christ's church.
As recorded in the Old Testament, the practice of male circumcision was established as a sign of covenant - sealed in male flesh - between God and Abraham. Yet, the Council of Jerusalem did not require the ancient rite as a mark of faith for male, Gentile converts to Christianity. This recording examines the covenant of circumcision, its cultural implications in the first century, and the New Testament's radical departure from the practice. The significance of the church's abandonment of the ritual and the implications of this fact for both male and female followers of Christ will also be explored.
This lecture draws from the latest leadership literature to make a compelling case for the importance of advancing more women into leadership by addressing both internal and external deterrents. This lecture also examines what works to overcome the "stained glass ceiling" by enhancing women's leadership self-efficacy, particularly within Christian subcultures that often limit their potential and opportunities.
This lecture demonstrates how the New Testament teachings of newness of life in Christ entails men and women sharing authority and leadership in the church and in the home. It examines in particular the interrelationship between the new creation theme in Galatians, and Paul's key emphasis in the context of men and women leading worship in prayer and prophecy in 1 Corinthians.
A Question Mark Over My Head: Learning From the Narratives of Female Theologians in the Evangelical Academy. This lecture presents the findings of a qualitative study of women in evangelicalism, using the Evangelical Theological Society's 2014 annual meeting as the research site. Themes from the research include a feeling of being stuck in the middle or marginalized; a need for networks, mentors, and supportive spouses and/or colleagues; combatting a lack of respect and lack of welcome; and navigating a space of entrenched complementarianism. This session also presents possible future steps for action for those who are interested in the evangelical academy and church.
