Annual International Scientific-Practical Conference
«Woman: the Christian perspectives »
On 21-22 of April 2016, the Annual Scientific-Practical Conference will take place in St.Petersburg Christian University.
With each year, the question of woman’s role in Christian ministry becomes more and more urgent. There are multiple reasons for this: the change in social roles of women in Russian and elsewhere; the lack of understanding of woman’s place in the ministry of Jesus and that of Early Christianity; the diversity of opinions on the roles of women in modern Christian communities of different denominations; the growing desire in some Evangelical churches and even whole denominations to actively involve women into ministry, including ordination of women; the growth of feminism in Europe and English-speaking countries, which influences practical theology, leadership, as well as historical and biblical studies.
There will be plenary meetings, as well as work in three sections:
- Theology and History of the Church
- Psychology and Pedagogy.
To register for the conference, you need to send an application form to: firstname.lastname@example.org till the first of April 2016. You need to indicate your full name, address, place of work/ministry, academic degree (see the registration blank).
If you want to participate with a paper, you need to send an annotation of your paper (up to 200 words) together with the application. Your paper should be on one of these topics:
