Women In Ministry

A 12 week in-depth course, mentorship, and motivational experience with Dr. Susie C. Owens

This course is designed to inform and enlighten students of the active presence of women and their role in spreading the Gospel message.  Whether pulpiteers, missionaries, or teachers, the female contribution to the success of the church is one that cannot be denied or ignored.  This course will seek to provide an understanding of the many struggles women have endured because of their gender, as it relates to religious piety and policy.  There was, and in some instances, still is, an apparent sexism that exists.  It is the objective of this course to examine some of the issues that perpetuate gender differences and the relevance for the development of new ideology.  It is hoped that from the lectures and assigned readings, a better understanding will emerge concerning female leadership that will embrace the acceptance of all who are called.
