In the first quarter of this milestone year, I want to take an opportunity to say hello as the Women’s Leadership Developer for the CRCNA. This newly shaped role was integrated into Pastor Church Resources this past year, giving it increased influence in supporting congregations and leaders with resources to foster greater personal and communal health.
This year marks 25 years of ordaining women in the role of Minister of the Word, Commissioned Pastor, and Elder. It took many years of prayer, study, dialogue, and conviction to get us to June 1996, and our commitment for women to flourish in their gifts for the health and mission of the church continues still today. Thank you for your role in our shared commitment!
