Women are uniquely equipped to engage in ministry within our churches and into our communities and beyond. As they live out their faith in the various areas of their lives, women may effectively reach out with the love of Christ to non-believers and believers alike, encouraging missional ministry, church growth and discipleship.
Women of the 21st century face a much different world than those of previous generations. Educational opportunities, societal changes and far-reaching world events present new challenges to the Church to connect with women where they are.
Never to be done "on it's own", ministry with and by women must be an integral part of God's work among the whole body of Christ.
Our task is to equip women to minister
in relevant ways to a changing world
with the Good News of an unchanging God.
The Evangelical Presbyterian Church recognizes the giftedness and worth of women in our churches. It acknowledges and encourages the utilization of their gifts in partnership with the whole body of Christ for the building of God's kingdom. EPC Women In Ministry affirms The Essentials of our faith.
