BWIM Luncheon
at CBF General Assembly

June 21, 2024 | 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM

This year BWIM will host a luncheon at CBF General Assembly, Friday, June 21, 2024, 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM. At the luncheon, we will welcome keynote speaker Rev. Angela Denker, author of Red State Christians: A Journey into White Christian Nationalism and the Wreckage It Leaves. Rev. Denker will provide invaluable insights into the intersection of Christian nationalism and gender dynamics. With a specific focus on the Southern Baptist Convention’s recent actions to disfellowship churches with female pastors, Denker will illuminate the broader influence of Christian nationalism on gender within our Baptist community.
