Women’s Transformation and Leadership

Building God’s Church Together

Women and men working together to become “a fellowship of congregations in which all women are equipped and empowered to fully exercise their gifts in the life, ministry, mission, and offices of the church.”

Women on the move, in the movement of the Spirit.

This is us. This is our ministry: Women’s Transformation and Leadership. A ministry that has a strong legacy, rooted in RCA women’s ministries and mission work and over 40 years of ordained leadership. To God be the glory!

Women on the move, in the movement of the Spirit. From Michigan to New York, from California to Canada, and well beyond—we are God’s beloved daughters seeking God’s will for our lives and embracing our gloriously diverse callings. We are stepping up with courage and holy boldness to be equipped for ministry, alongside each other and our brothers, in a world that longs to experience Christ’s love, peace, and liberation.

Women on the move, in the movement of the Spirit. Faithful, fearless women and girls called by God for just such a time as this, walking in the footsteps of Esther, Deborah, and Rahab, of Sarah and Hagar, Ruth and Naomi, and Mary and Elizabeth, of Phoebe, Junia, and Lydia.

It is in this spirit of purpose and joyful expectancy that we celebrate how RCA women continue this legacy today through the #sheiscalled campaign. The #sheiscalled campaign raises up the ways in which RCA women, and in fact all sisters in Christ, are living out their callings today, honors the legacy they follow (see Legacy of Leadership booklet), and looks forward to the ways women and girls will continue to lead us in the future.
