Sunday, March 3rd, 2024
The Free Methodist Church ordains women. Sure, you know that. But does your congregation?
The inaugural PreacHer Sunday will be Sunday, March 3rd, 2024.
FMC women have difficulty getting appointed to senior positions, and when they do, large segments of the church often leave. One reason is that they never see a woman in leadership—or in the pulpit.
We need to change that.
You can’t accept what you’ve never imagined.
You can’t imagine what’s never been.
You can’t be what you don’t see.
PreacHer Sunday is a joint initiative of the FM network Advocates for Women in Leadership and the Strategic Catalyst for Love Driven Justice. The goal is for every church in the FMC USA to have a woman deliver the main service message at least four times a year.
