Nazarene Theological Seminary is pleased to announce the launch of a revised and expanded website for the Wynkoop Center for Women in Ministry. Readers can access the site through its new Web address, wcwim.org, or through NTS' website.

“In a day and time when there seems to be confusion over the place of women clergy, the Wynkoop Center and the newly upgraded website provide us with very clear and varied tools that allow us to articulate the Wesleyan perspective,” said Carla Sunberg, president of Wesleyan-Holiness Women Clergy International. “The Church needs its women to be actively engaged in ministry while its women need to find a place to minister. The support of the Wynkoop Center allows us to recognize the importance of the synergistic alliance that is created when both God’s sons and daughters are actively participating in ministry.”

The website includes 21 Bible studies on women in ministry, written by leading Wesleyan scholars from around the world. Organized in four units — the Creation Mandate, Old Testament Women in Public Leadership, New Testament Women in Public Leadership, and Difficult Passages in the New Testament — each study includes an exposition, a commentary, and a group study guide. Additional resources are being developed to accompany these lessons.

The site also contains biographies of women in ministry — current and historical — and new links to other ministry resources. Another new feature is an ongoing blog with entries written by women in a variety of ministry roles. Writers’ guidelines, available on the website, provide direction for anyone interested in writing a blog post or providing other materials for potential inclusion.

The Wynkoop Center for Women in Ministry is collecting stories to be included in a book project. Submitted stories will be organized into one of three categories: a significant personal encounter with a woman in ministry, an experience that confirmed God’s call to women in ministry, or a significant personal encounter with a champion of women in ministry. For more information or to submit a story for consideration, contact Judi Schwanz, director of the Wynkoop Center for Women in Ministry, at WynkoopCenter@nts.edu.
