Randy Stinson, executive director for CBMW, says the additions only serve to strengthen the organization’s work within the evangelical world.
“I am excited about the Council members we have added because it gives CBMW the depth and longevity it needs,” said Stinson. Each of our new additions brings different gifts to the work of CBMW, and all are current leaders in the evangelical community in various ways.
“Not only this, but it is expected that they will be influencing the evangelical community for the next several decades. I have a deep amount of respect for these individuals and look forward to serving together as we help the church deal biblically with the critical matter of gender issues. These new Council members are gifts to CBMW and to the churches we serve.”
