Congratulations to Newly Licensed Female Ministers in UPCI!
http://www.sxc.hu/photo/426705
This past weekend I was looking at the Forward and saw several newly licensed women ministers! It’s incredible. I would love to congratulate these women of faith and leaders in our organization. Here are their names and districts. Let’s make a big deal about this, and if you see them on Facebook connect to them and congratulate them for their call to ministry, service, and leadership in our organization. These names tell a story. They tell a story of women who are answering the call of God on their lives, and the story of how the UPCI is licensing women. These names represent women who are leaders in our organization. It’s a happy day when you see nearly thirty newly licensed female ministers. There is going to come a day when there are over a hundred, and then a thousand, and then beyond! God has set before us an open door.
