Over the past year the Board of Young Clergy Women International has worked hard on updating the organization’s mission and values. Our mission statement reads:
Young Clergy Women International creates a holy and authentic community that sustains generous collaboration for Christian clergy women under 40.
The core values that the Board has adopted are Kinship, Embodied, Nurturing and Championing, and during this year’s fall fundraising drive you will hear more about these values at work within our organization and our hope for the future of Young Clergy Women International (follow along on our social media sites). Many of us have been invited into this mission by a sister in ministry or even a mentor, but what we found here was more than we could ask for or even imagine.
Our organization is able to do the work it does because of the financial generosity of its members. The money raised during fall fundraising allows us to pay our minimal operations expenses, subsidize conference expenses and provide for scholarships, pay our Fidelia (online magazine) writers, and offer relevant online trainings and formation opportunities for our ever-growing online community. Your financial support of YCWI helps ensure that future generations of young clergy women can be welcomed into this community, attend their first conference, or feel supported in their vocation for the first time.
With your support, YCWI looks forward to a new chapter in our organizational life where we are able to bring more young clergy women into our organization, allowing us to establish representation throughout the world, and continue to create quality opportunities for fellowship, formation, and continuing education for our members, alumnae, and future members.
