Three Reasons Women Go to Seminary

I asked women across the country: Why are you here?

In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul tells us that God gave each of us gifts for the good of the whole. Each of us serves an essential role in the church, and if even a single one is missing, we are a crippled body. The churches raising up women and sending them into ministry get this. They’ve caught Paul’s vision, and they’re living it. But we need more churches to catch it too. If we want to be the body of Christ in all its fullness, let’s commit to being good stewards of all our resources—and that includes the gifted women among us.
