- A professional and relational community for women holding, pursuing, or considering credentials.
- A fellowship of the Southern California District Council of the Assemblies of God.
"Connecting women called by God”
- We affirm the call of God in the lives of women ministers
- We seek to facilitate and resource women as they pursue their callings
Connection: We are diverse in callings, gifts, cultures, marital status, and journeys, yet are members of one Body. We believe that friendship, shared life experience, and praying together promote stronger, healthier persons and ministries. We seek to create opportunities for women in ministry to build relationships with each other.
Credentials: We encourage women in ministry to pursue credentials as a tangible sign of commitment to vocational ministry, accountability to authority, and credibility in having diligently prepared for ministry.
Participation: We encourage women ministers to participate in the community of believers -- in their churches, sections, and District. As women ministers participate at every level, it increases effective ministry and visibility. Increased visibility serves two purposes: promoting open doors for women in ministry and providing role models for young women in our congregations and universities who feel the call of God on their lives.
Enrichment: We advocate professional and personal growth for women in ministry and strive to provide opportunities and resources to help them reach their God-given potential.
Connections: Regularly scheduled meetings to provide opportunities to connect and be challenged Connections-plus: Connection meetings in varied geographical areas of the SoCal District Communications: Social media, email, and website and other available means Resources: Events, publications, links, and articles to enhance ministry and personal growth
On November 28, 2006 the Executive Presbytery of the Southern California Assemblies of God voted unanimously to recognize the Women in Ministry Fellowship and accept our Articles of Fellowship. SoCal Women In Ministry Fellowship and its officers are amenable to the office of the District Superintendent. SoCal Women In Ministry Officers are elected by the Women In Ministry membership. (Voting membership is “all credentialed women ministers holding accredited fellowship certificates from the General Council, including those holding Ordained, License to Preach, and Certified Minister credentials from the Southern California District Council”.) The President, by virtue of office, also serves as a Presbyter. The Female Representative Executive Presbyter is nominated by the Women In Ministry membership and elected by the entire District Council.
