“So God created man in his own image, in the image of the God created he him; male and female created he them.” Genesis 1:27

The image of God, as embodied in the skills and insights of women, will be more fully reflected in our churches and communities as we achieve our goals:

Our Mission

To advocate for participation of women in all leadership roles in the Seventh-day Adventist organization, congregations, and communities.



  • To enhance the church’s effectiveness by fostering a grass roots movement to recognize women’s service as leadership and allow full partnership of women in the entirety of church life.

  • To promote leadership skills among Adventist women of various ages and backgrounds.

  • To establish a network for Adventist women to inspire and support each other in leadership.

  • To work amicably with the church to create more significant opportunities for women in all levels of administration and ministry, including ordination.

  • To highlight Adventist women’s contributions so their skills can be fully valued.


To demonstrate open and collaborate models by working in complementary ways with other church organizations.
