Gender conference


What does it mean to be a man? What does it mean to be a woman? Does it even matter? How do these questions bear upon topics such as how we work together in society at large and the church in ways that affirm and promote us in all that God has created us to be? It is so important to seek clarity with civility in pursuit of biblical unity, diversity, and honor in a culture where our beauty as God’s human creation is so often endangered by physical, emotional, and spiritual abuse. We approached gender identity from a variety of angles in a biblically integrated and in a culturally meaningful manner. We had a full slate of topics including gender roles, sex trafficking, pornography, gender non-conforming, masculinity, femininity, complementarianism, egalitarianism, the Trinity and gender, gender and social construction, headship, and ethnicity and gender.

New Wine hosted this conference on Saturday, March 3 from 9am – 4pm at Multnomah Biblical Seminary (8435 NE Glisan St. in Portland). Speakers included Steve and Celestia Tracy (Mending the Soul Ministries), Val Clemen (Multnomah Biblical Seminary), Barbara Feil (Multnomah Biblical Seminary), Paul Louis Metzger (New Wine Director), Brad Harper (New Wine Associate Director), Domani Pothen (Multnomah University), Elizabeth List (Multnomah University), Michael Gurney (Multnomah University), Tom Schiave (Multnomah Biblical Seminary), Katie Langner (Multnomah Biblical Seminary), Wink Chin (New Wine), Cliff Chappell (New Wine), and Beyth Hogue Greenetz (New Wine).
