Christian Conferences Should Reflect the Body of Christ

Last week, a controversy erupted over Twitter when it came to light that a prominent evangelical conference with 110 speakers only had 4 women on stage.

Journalist Jonathan Merritt, did a quick informal study and discovered that out of 34 prominent evangelical conferences, only 19% of speakers were women.

I agree with Jim Wallis and Lisa Sharon Harper that Christian conferences should reflect the full body of Christ.

Currently, only 19% of speakers at major Christian conferences are female.
