gender gapPartner in Prayer to Bridge the Gap The Whole Gospel to the Whole World by the Whole Church

Have you ever wondered how many UPCI ministers are female? Maybe you didn’t know there were any female ministers in the organization. Figure 1 shows the number of female ministers who hold a license by district in the United States, with Canadian data listed as well. These numbers reveal the gender disparity within the organization and call for a plan of prayer.

Will you dedicate 12 days to pray for female ministers and their districts? Women who are pioneering a path deserve our prayers. Rejection and social risks are high costs to pay. Please pray for God’s protection, encouragement and opportunities for these precious ladies of God who have answered the call to labor in the harvest field.
