Conferences & Events


In 2007 & 2008 TYCWP and the Cathedral College of Preachers in Washington, DC, offered young clergy women the opportunity to fellowship with one another and hone their homiletical skills.  Both conferences were times of great encouragement and intensive learning. To read reflections on and see pictures of the 2007 “Preaching As Testimony” conference with Rev. Dr. Anna Carter Florence, click here. For a visual storybook of the 2008 “Embodying the Sermon” conference with Rev. Dr. Ruthanna Hooke, click here.


With the close of Cathedral College, TYCWP began to dream about what a conference designed from the ground up by and for young clergy women would look like. In 2010, we partnered with Candler School of Theology at Emory University and the Resource Center for Pastoral Excellence to explore Leading As Ourselves: Discerning Models For Ministry. In Atlanta, we were led by the Rev. Melissa Clodfelter and the Rev. Beth Kennett.


Join us from August 8-11, 2011 at Duke Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina for a time of rest and renewal, challenge and prayer as we focus on our Spiritual Health. This year’s conference will be led by the Reverend Winnie Varghese as we explore who we are in God’s eyes. Visit our conference page for more information and to register!


We are a network of young clergy women who seek to be together to sustain, enliven and enrich our ministries.  It is not uncommon to find us gathering in local communities or at national gatherings.  If you’re interested in find where we might be, look for us on Facebook and Twitter.
