Aimee Semple McPherson: An Inspiration for Women and Men in Ministry
Sunday, February 25, 4:00pm - 5:30pm 2018
In this one time seminar taught by Leah Payne, Professor of Christian Studies at George Fox University, we will take a look at the remarkable life and ministry of Aimee Semple McPherson, Founder of the Foursquare Church. McPherson was one of a kind; she was a famous (and infamous) preacher, church founder, media mogul, artistic director, fundraiser, songwriter, single mom, and divorcée who challenged just about every stereotype about women in public life. Her personal and professional trials and triumphs highlight the challenges and opportunities that women with a call to ministry face in America. And, her belief in the power of the Spirit to work through a willing vessel continues to inspire women and men in the Foursquare Church and beyond.
