||The General Commission on the Status and Role of Women (GCSRW) now offers the resource “Women Called to Ministry” in Spanish, French and Portuguese translations. “Women Called to Ministry” is a six-session study that explores why women are included in the full life of the church.
"The mission of The United Methodist Church through GCSRW is founded in scripture, which establishes that both men and women are equal in the eyes of God,” General Secretary Dawn Hare states. “GCSRW has learned through our listening sessions that critical theological education is needed for both men and women across the church and around the world know both women and men can be leaders in our church. The availability of ‘Women Called to Ministry’ is an extraordinary resource to teach scripture, to affirm the value of women, and to help women examine their call across the connection."
“’Women Called to Ministry’ is the first written material in Portuguese for women in ministry that Mozambiquian have access to. This comes as a strong tool to encourage woman in ministry,” Bishop of Mozambique Area, Joaquina F. Nhanala says. “This resource will train both men and women. The church needs to understand that both men and women are called into ministry.”
“Women Called to Ministry” is available online at www.gcsrw.org in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese translations located underneath the ‘Resource’ tab. To access the "Women Called to Ministry" curriculum, click here.
