World Evangelical Alliance Women's Commission

Dr. Seble Daniel

Dr. Seble Daniel succeeds Amanda Jackson, who led the Women’s Commission for eight years. In announcing her appointment, WEA Secretary General Bishop Dr. Thomas Schirrmacher commented, “More than half of our evangelical constituency is female. The success of our movement depends heavily on the effective engagement of women at all levels, from the local church to global ministries. This is especially true in the Global South. I am happy and proud that our Womens Commission, which has representation from all regions of the world, now also has in Dr. Seble Daniel a strong and experienced leader from the Global South who demonstrated success in both academic roles and practical ministry. 

Seble Daniel is an Ethiopian theologian and a member of the Ethiopian Kale Heywet Church. She served for two decades as a full-time faculty member and held various leadership positions at the Evangelical Theological College and Ethiopian Graduate School of Theology (EGST).

She also held the position of chair of women in her denomination, because she is passionate about contextual theology and women’s empowerment and has been involved in various initiatives aimed at eradicating traditional practices that are harmful to women.

Seble currently serves with SIM as the Director for its East African Sending Office while remaining a part-time faculty member at EGST. Moreover, she is a member of several leadership teams including Langham International, INFEMIT, and the Circle of Concerned African Women Theologians.

Seble and her husband have three children and live in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
