CBE International (Christians for Biblical Equality) advances the gospel by equipping Christians to use their God-given talents in leadership and service regardless of gender, ethnicity, or class. CBE, a 501c3 nonprofit, is supported by a community that believes the Bible, properly interpreted, calls women and men to lead and serve as equals, based on Scriptures such as Galatians 3:28. With supporters, ministry partners, and local chapters from over 100 denominations and 65 countries, CBE engages Christians with conferences, adult and youth curricula, multi-media resources, award-winning publications, a blog, and more. CBE collaborates with pastors, churches, schools, and NGOs around the world to eliminate gender-based violence and human trafficking, and improve girls’ access to education by raising the status of women. For more than 30 years, CBE’s articles, books, and conferences have provided healing and hope for Christian women and men around the world.

In collaboration with award-winning film director, writer, and producer, Brandon Dickerson, CBE is creating a feature film on the life of an early evangelical medical missionary, Bible translator, and egalitarian activist—Dr. Katharine Bushnell. The film will tell Katharine’s story of how she risked her reputation and life going undercover inside Wisconsin's lumber camps to expose the government-sanctioned trafficking of girls and women.
CBE recruited an expert team of women and men from diverse ethnic, racial, geographic, and denominational backgrounds to work on translating 500-plus Bible verses (70 different passages) that will provide exegetically-sound, gender-accurate, and accessible English translations from the original biblical texts. They are working to identify where the wording of traditional English translations is inconsistent with the sense of the original language. We need $60,000 to cover the final phase.
CBE is developing online courses with topics such as leadership in marriage and family, Bible translation and interpreting challenging passages, and more. These courses can be completed as an individual or with a group. They serve as an introduction to topics, with options that allow for deeper learning. Students can learn at their own pace, giving them time to absorb or discuss the material before moving on. The annual cost is $11,000.

CBE International acts where Christian faith, global humanitarian work, and women’s equality intersect. Women's equality is not attainable without addressing underlying cultural and faith-based beliefs that devalue and disempower women and girls, making them vulnerable to abuse. By providing culturally-appropriate biblical resources, CBE collaborates with ministry leaders and other change agents in Sub-Saharan Africa to address power imbalances between women and men.
Given the challenges and inequities women face in the church and Christian academia, the Alvera Mickelsen Memorial Scholarship (AMMS) was created to help women answer the call to ministry by providing academic scholarships. The scholarship is designed to provide financial assistance to women who are pursuing a master’s degree in a ministry field related to preaching, communications, writing, youth ministry, pastoral work, or nonprofit work.
Due to the declining biblical literacy among Christians and the consequent lack of awareness of women in Scripture and mission, CBE created weekly radio spots that highlight these women and show that they were created in God's image to share leadership with men. We would like to run similar radio spots in new cities. The cost to produce radio spots is $60,000 for each city.
