I am wondering what you are using as your definition of ministry. I can think of many women who have been encouraged and who were encouraging in their roles as workers in God's Kingdom.

Carol Penner

That's a very good question Valorie! I think women have always been involved in ministry in the MB church, in the sense that everyone is called to service. And I know women have been leaders in Sunday school ministry and women's ministry. Where women have been restricted, traditionally, in the MB church, is in exercising leadership ministry of the congregation, as ordained ministers and even as chairpeople of boards. In this blog post I am speaking of women who have felt a call to leadership ministry in the congregation, but have only been able to do that through their husband's appointment. Their own gifts are not recognized apart from being a wife of a leader.
