The first female district superintendent was Elsie Wallace, appointed to the Northwest District in 1920 after E. J. Fleming resigned in midyear. Wallace was ordained an elder by Phineas Bresee in 1902. The second was Rosa Lee, who originally was appointed superintendent of the Leeward Virgin Islands District by then-General Superintendent Donald Owens and served from 1990 to 1999. Now in her 70s, Lee continues to pastor the Beacon Light Church of the Nazarene in St. John's, Antigua. Mary Lou Riggle, currently superintendent of the Costa Rica Central District, is the third woman to hold the office.
