LSP 512 Church Culture & the Role of Women in Leadership

The purpose of this course is to examine the various perspectives on the role of women in leadership in the church. Biblical, historical and contemporary cultural issues will be considered in an effort to create a theological and philosophical perspective on the leadership role of women in the church. Biblical passages will be studied and discussed in order to see the connections between the principles and practices of scripture. A key factor in the class will be the creation of an irenic spirit of interaction that will facilitate open discussion and dialogue. 3 credits.
