The Center for Women in Ministry Leadership
How would God’s kingdom move forward if women were empowered and equipped for spiritual leadership? Since The King’s University was founded in 1997, Dr. Jack Hayford has emphasized the importance of the role of women in leadership. Now, The Center for Women in Ministry Leadership (WIML) is taking that vision even further.
The Center for Women in Ministry Leadership at The King’s University is designed as a gathering place for personal development and spiritual growth as women learn to navigate the unique issues within their ministry context. The program supports women earning graduate and undergraduate degrees. Graduate students in the Master of Divinity and Master of Practical Theology programs can select a Women in Ministry Leadership concentration, which will launch in the spring of 2020. Undergraduate students in any degree program can participate in the experience. The program includes leadership training and dialogue on tough issues facing women in ministry leadership, small group mentoring, and an annual spiritual retreat.
