Feminism is making a renewed push in the church across multiple denominations. Whereas this is a contentious battle in the Southern Baptist Convention, the Christian and Missionary Alliance is just laying down and taking it.
After a recent decision to allow female pastors just eight churches have announced an exit from the denomination. Alliance Bible Fellowship out of Boone, North Carolina left in late July Yet Christianity Today notes only seven others have left.
Many pastors in the C&MA apparently do not see women pastors as a proxy for the authority of Scripture and therefore do not see that it is worth leaving the denomination over. The fact that so few have left is indication that the remaining churches are tacitly on board with the liberal drift in the once conservative Christian and Missionary Alliance.
