Supporting Women in Ministry
Our aim is to support women in ministry regardless of how or where they are serving. At Abilene Christian, more than 63% of students and 52% of instructional faculty are women, making our work vital throughout our university. We strive to create opportunities for community-building and provide resources for all women pursuing service in ministry.
Find Your Place Here
The Center for Women in Christian Ministry serves the communities both on and off campus. Not only do we support our undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty and staff, but we are equipped to mentor any women desiring to serve in ministry. Whether you are formally pursuing a vocation of ministry or simply seeking to minister to others as an active part of your life, you have a place here. We invite you to reach out and join us for an event or let us walk alongside you as you help others grow closer to Christ.
What do we offer?
We provide a variety of resources both on campus and in our surrounding communities, including:
- Support for women pursuing careers in or currently serving in ministry
- Opportunities for building community and relationships through small and large group gatherings
- Vocational support to help with an interview, resumé and contract processes
- Connections with job and leadership development opportunities
- An environment in which women called to ministry are able to lean into their giftedness
Find Support in Community
We offer both large group and small group gatherings designed to support our community of women pursuing ministry. We invite you to join us for our monthly small group chapel. Whether we are worshiping together or reflecting on God’s word, you will experience a time of encouragement and affirmation. We hope you will join us!

“Ministry can be a relatively isolated job, much more so as a woman in a church historically led by men. Having a support network throughout the educational process that has followed me into ministry has been crucial in helping me feel like I have people in my corner. Both growing in theological understanding and practicing ministry require deep inner work, and sharing this work within a supportive community gave me roots and encouragement along my journey.”
