The Women in Ministry Initiative (WIM) honors, celebrates, and remembers all women associated with Princeton Theological Seminary.
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
“One of the biggest lessons I learned was how to be charitable to views other than my own. Christian charity was shown to me, not just in the readings for class, but from the professors, and the Seminary community.”
