Women in Ministry MEG Sub-Team
During this past Annual Conference, our Ministerial Education and Guidance Board reported on a significant initiative regarding Women in Ministry. An important element of this initiative had to do with the creation of a MEG subteam chaired by an ordained women who would provide advocacy for other women elders in our conference who feel marginalized by complementarian theology and/or institutional bias. During our most recent MEG Board meeting, ordained elder Heather Castle was chosen to give leadership to this important component of our MEG Board. The Southern Michigan Conference is firmly committed to shifting to a culture whereby we fully embrace, adopt and enact our egalitarian understanding of Scripture at all levels of congregational life.
