Gender Equality in Ministry

0 student


Dr. William Rudd will enable students to develop a Biblical view of the role of women in church ministry including ordained pastoral ministry. The course will provide a broad understanding of the two primary positions regarding women in ministry (complementarian and egalitarian) giving priority to the egalitarian interpretation reflected in the textbook. A lesser but important focus will be given to Biblical gender roles in marriage and society. Emphasis will be placed on practical implementation of one’s position in church ministry.
