Highlight: Celebrating the Gifts of Women in Ministry

The Women in Ministry Advisory Team extends an invitation to join in a public affirmation of the gifts that women bring to ministry and for the vision of the full partnership of men and women in professional church leadership. The “Celebrating the Gifts of Women in Ministry” initiative seeks to highlight the support that already exists for women as leaders in our churches—but may not be widely known—in order to encourage others to join in this momentous movement.

Those interested in signing the letter and affirming women as ministerial leaders for our churches can do so by visiting the following link: http://www.abc-usa.org/what_we_believe/abc-organizations/abwim/openletter/

The “Celebrating the Gifts of Women in Ministry” letter will publicize the names of those who support women’s leadership, with the hope that those who may be unsure will be encouraged to think about, discuss and explore supporting women’s gifts for ministry.

Signees of the letter become advocates in celebrating and supporting women’s gifts for ministry. The Advisory Team plans to use this letter to encourage others to support women as equal partners with men in ministering to all God’s people.
