Women in the World Conference

Women in the World 2015- March 25final logo-dancer



For the past 30 years, Women in the World (previously Women and the Word: 1985-2009) has been a witness to women’s participation in the church, which has often been troubled, and at times painful, but still audacious and victorious. Despite the numerous challenges and pains, our brave women have transformed what it means for women to participate in ministry through the integration of their specific contexts, styles and forms of preaching, and movements for the rights of many different people. Celebrating 30 years of our Women in the World, we are exploring the foundations of these progressions, what challenges still face us, and asking where we hope to go. We are envisioning and sharing the vibrancy of future women’s ministry.
