Students' wives, and female students, staff, and faculty members make up Women of Western (WOW). This is a fellowship designed to encourage women intellectually; provide opportunity for them to develop skills in ministry and in their various roles as wives and mothers; and to foster their own moral, spiritual, and character development. It also provides opportunities for leadership and training in a practical, supportive environment. The fellowship brings together women from diverse backgrounds who share common goals. The group meets periodically during the fall and spring semesters. Occasionally, special events are planned that include the entire Seminary community.
WOW events provide social interaction and spiritual enrichment for all women and wives of faculty, staff, and students on the Portland campus of Western. We desire to encourage & equip women for their unique place in the world.
Mentoring Groups or one-on-one
Women students and student wives are encouraged to spend time with 3-6 other women and a mentor. This is a place to grow, experience deeper friendships, and benefit from the experiences of mature women. Personal mentoring may also be an option.
