Initiatives

Women In Church Leadership

Our Women in Church Leadership Initiative has grown from a project of the same name into several projects and resources that promote the full inclusive message of Jesus’ call to ministry for all the baptized. This effort includes our Celebrating Women Witnesses, Mary of Magdala, Women and the Word, Women Deacons, Women in Church Leadership, and Women in the Early Church projects. Each project has its own goals and resources for you to help advocate for a return to the practices of the early church which recognized the charism of both men and women.
