Women's Center for Ministry

Come Join Us

As a woman, do you hold dreams close to your heart of glorifying Christ through serving the Kingdom of God? Of investing your God-given gifts and passions to really make a difference for Christ’s Kingdom? Today women of all ages are advancing in the marketplace, the community, the church, their neighborhoods and homes with a burning desire to be used of God as Kingdom influencers. No longer are women content to sit back and not have their lives count! At every season of life women are speaking out, longing to multiply their influence by connecting with a God who is on the move in our broken world today. If this is your heartbeat, Western Seminary’s Women’s Center for Ministry (WCM) and the Women’s Transformational Leadership Track (WL) long to be of help!

Our Mission 

The Women’s Center for Ministry exists to be a global hub to bring training, resources, and encouragement to empower women involved in ministry and those they influence to thrive as Kingdom influencers.

Our Values

We believe women will thrive as influencers when they value gospel-centered transformation; biblical excellence; gifts, passions and callings; strategic collaboration and mentoring; and Christ-centered worship and prayer.

Our Footprint

We prepare and involve women in ministry through community gatherings, citywide events, monthly newsletters, and seminary training from Women's Transformational Leadership courses (graduate credit or non-credit).
