Women in Ministry

Erdman Center

 Telling our Stories:
Breaking the Mold, Taking Risks, Paving the Way


October 23 4:00 p.m. till October 25 at noon, 2017

Sponsored by Princeton Theological Seminary’s Women in Ministry Initiative of the Center for Theology, Women and Gender



In the church and in entrepreneurial ministries, in the workplace, at home, and in centers of power all over, the experience of being a woman is both a joy and a struggle. We gather to share our stories of ministry, to cultivate new strategies for ministry, to support and celebrate women in leadership at all levels, both lay and ordained.

Connect with women in diverse ministries from around the world, raise your voice in solidarity with all women struggling to find a voice in society today, respond anew to God’s call to all people to minister in Christ’s name.

Come to be refreshed, come to be empowered, come to address the injustices and celebrate the successes of women in church and society.

Who is this conference for?

Women from a variety of denominations in both lay and ordained ministries who serve God and others, from pastors to civil servants, from Christian educators to workers in non-profits, from chaplains to teachers, from artists to social justice advocates, from church officers to congregation members, all are welcome.
