The Dilemma

So, I am still thinking about the problem of ordained women who have no place to serve. They have finished their training, some even have internships, and then no ministerial search committee or church board will invite them to candidate or even seriously consider their resume.
Many of these women give up and leave the denomination or just give up and do other things.
Does God call? Do women prepare? Then the church just refuses to even consider them?
I wonder about this...don't you?


  1. I have known this to happen. When I was looking for a church to serve in, my DS was told by several churches that they would not even interview a woman.

  2. Unfortunately, it is more common than we might like to think.
