Christian women have needs and interests as well as gifts and abilities. While they might experience those in different ways due to a variety of cultural circumstances, congregations can create opportunities for women to meet their needs and empower their abilities!
In this course, learners will investigate women’s roles in Christianity over time, the theological development they brought to the faith, the theological equality of women’s ministries, and a variety of theological ideas about/by/for women.
Learners are required to have the following book for this class:
- Women in Christian Traditions by Rebecca Moore
The instructor will offer a weekly Zoom meeting for discussion which will be recorded for those who cannot attend.
This course is eligible for 3.0 CEU.
