ABOUT SEDWIM

The mission of the Second Episcopal District Women In Ministry (SEDWIM) is to meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of women in ministry. It is designed to encourage women to grow in their faith in Christ, to develop and strengthen intimate friendships with other women, and to provide opportunities to serve and reach our community for Christ. We are clergy women of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds who hold a variety of gifts, talents and skills. We cherish and work to be advocates on behalf of all women clergy, the young and the not as young! We seek to share the incredible strengths and resources found in the African Methodist Episcopal Church so that we may be better, wiser and stronger in carrying out God's ministry and mission in the world.

 

This call involves a commitment to train, develop, inspire and instill within clergy women (local; itinerant, evangelist, exhorter etc.) the desire to fulfill their potential in life with a sense of dignity, determination and destiny.

 

Role & Purpose of the SEDWIM

 

      1. Model and share best practice in Communication, programming, and leadership

      2. Represent and build support for each other.

      3. Foster spiritual growth and renewal among women;

      4. Build support among women in ministry that encourages bonds of sisterhood

          and the creative exchange of ideas and information;

      5. Mentor and encourage the younger WIM to reach for their potential in Christ;

      6. Find ways and means to challenge each woman to use her gifts to compliment

          the talents of other women as we work side by side to further the mission,

          vision and goals SEDWIM.

 

"A new command I give you, that you love one another. Even as I have loved you, you must love one another. By this the world will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."

John 13:34-35

                               MINISTER, TURNER MEMORIAL AME CHURCH

 

Natasha Jamison Gadson: How do

you know when it's time to leave?

 

Resigning from a thriving megachurch was emotional and difficult for a minister on the staff. But once she realized that staying in a comfortable place was not the best use of her gifts, she knew it was time to go.
