Our Community

We are our members. The young clergy women that join our project make us the dynamic group we are. Our membership includes:

YCWI seeks to provide members with opportunities for online relationship-building and wisdom-sharing.  Our members are invited to share in a password-protected community with other young clergy women on Facebook and on our website. Twitter and Facebook foster this password-protected community and further provides members and friends of YCWI with the opportunity to catch up on the latest news.

We encourage our members to gather together in their area for regional meet-ups. We offer support and nurture in-person meet-ups gatherings in local churches, at coffee shops and at denominational events.  In these gatherings, our members meet for coffee or a meal and transition their online connections into real-life friendships.

YCWI also offers community to those young women discerning a call into the ministry. Future Young Clergy Women is a password-protected online community for young women waiting for ordination found both on Facebook and on our website.
