“Prosperity gospel” is often associated with a stereotype of flamboyant male preachers who manipulate listeners with false promises of extravagant wealth or blame them for their poverty. Yet, these are not the only teachers of prosperity. Tamie Davis will share her research about the prosperity theology held by one group of Tanzanian women, and how it is different to the stereotype and might even be the antidote to it! She will invite us to learn from these women about who God is and how we can be at work in his world for our good and his glory.

Tamie Davis is from Adelaide, South Australia and has lived in Tanzania for the last decade as a Gospel Worker with CMS Australia and an Associate of Tanzania Fellowship of Evangelical Students. She came to Tanzania expecting to combat the prosperity gospel but encountered something that sounded kind of like it and kind of not and became intrigued enough to do a PhD on it! She used to blog a lot and now blogs a little at Her twitter handle is @tamiesdavis
