Conversing

As president and ambassador of Fuller Theological Seminary, Mark Labberton takes the occasion of his travels to speak with a broad spectrum of leaders on issues at the heart of the seminary’s mission. It is Fuller's practice to allow conversations with our guests to be uncensored as a gesture of engagement in civil dialogue—a value to which Fuller Theological Seminary is deeply committed. We invite you to listen with hospitality, realizing that guests reflect their own views and not necessarily views in harmony with the stated mission of Fuller.

In this episode of “Conversing,” Mimi Haddad, president of Christians for Biblical Equality, discusses gender equality and women in leadership.

She is the author of “Global Voices on Biblical Equality: Women and Men Ministering Together in the Church,” and she has been a leading advocate for women in leadership at Evangelicals for Justice, the Evangelical Theology Society, the Lausanne Conference, and more.
