The Women in Ministry Initiative (WIM)—part of the Center for Theology, Women, and Gender at Princeton Theological Seminary—honors, celebrates, and remembers all women associated with Princeton Seminary since its founding. These women include graduates, staff, administrators, trustees, field education supervisors, friends, supporters, and volunteers. WIM also offers ongoing support to, and advocacy for, women in their service to God, the church, and the world.

Who We Are

We are a group of diverse women who united confess one Lord, one faith, one baptism. Our sisterhood of saints crosses generations, cultures, languages, geographical landscapes, theological convictions, denominations, political beliefs, and areas of ministry and service.  

Women in ministry are old and young with rich and varied experiences in faith, life and ministry. We are single, married, partnered, divorced, and widowed. Some of us have children, grand-children, great-grandchildren. Some of us minister professionally. Some of us are lay ministers. We are sometimes weary with struggles and failures. Yet all of us are committed to the ministry of Jesus Christ, and so seek to be joyful and hope-filled.

Each of us has our own unique story believing that the Holy Spirit works in and through us for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and for the good of individuals, community, church, and the world. In all our many varied efforts we strive to use our gifts to love, serve and glorify God who creates, redeems, and sustains us
