As more churches want their leadership to reflect the population of their congregations, more women are able to answer their call into ministry.

Recognizing that God has always called women into vocational ministry and realizing that Baptists have been blessed over the years by the ministry of women who accepted the call of God to become missionaries, chaplains, teachers, professors and to serve in local church staff positions, the Baptist General Convention of Texas offers support and encouragement for all women who are in vocational ministries, to those who sense a call to vocational ministry, and to those involved in the support and training of present and future women in ministry.

We also want to affirm our churches who recognize God’s call in the lives of women and have given women the opportunity to serve God in the way they feel called.
