Women are a growing and active part of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Women are welcome in every aspect of ministry. Resources we offer to support women include the following.
Women’s Leadership Development and Young Women’s Ministries is a national ministry of the Presbyterian Mission Agency operating within Racial Ethnic & Women’s Ministries. The office of Women’s Leadership Development and Young Women’s Ministries provides resources to young adult women (ages 18–35) who are considering leadership opportunities in the church. You can also find information about our work in Gender and Racial Justice here.
Presbyterian Women (PW) offers women in the church meaningful ways to live out their faith in the midst of a caring community of women. For more than 200 years Presbyterian women’s groups have strengthened the Presbyterian Church and played a major role in sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and witnessing to the promise of God’s kingdom. And in 2013, Presbyterian Women celebrated 25 years of praying and working together as “Presbyterian Women,” the organization created within the reunited Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Learn more about initiating or revitalizing a PW group in your church.
