Who are members of the Women’s Ordination Conference?

Women and men who believe:

† The church, in fidelity to the gospel, must be open to the full and equal participation of women in all its ministries

† Women have an equal right with men to have their call to ordination tested and their church leadership respected

† Decisions affecting the life of the whole church should reflect female as well as male experience and thought

† The church hierarchy should not define male and female “roles” or perpetuate any system that defines or limits one’s gifts or calling on the basis of gender

† Renewing the priesthood is a critical step in revitalizing the entire church and being an effective, welcoming presence in our contemporary world.

What are the benefits of membership?
