About The Event
The role, status, and experience of women in the church and in the world represent a fundamental missiological issue of our day. These lectures center the conversation on naming the resources women bring to addressing personal, organizational, and social structure, as well as spiritual powers. The conference theme will be explored by scholars and practitioners from a variety of disciplines including missiology, theology, psychology, marriage and family therapy, sociology, history, and biblical studies.
Through lectures, panel discussions, and breakout groups, conference participants will have the opportunity to reflect on the ways women may dismantle barriers and enact their personal and collective agency to engage social, cultural, organizational, and spiritual power for the sake of the outworking of God’s shalom in their communities and contexts. These virtual lectures, with a node in Ghana, will equip the church to faithfully respond to God’s invitation to women to participate in God’s work in the world.
