Women, Women of Color, and LGBTQ+ Ministry Stories

The ELCA’s 50/40/10 celebrations commemorate the 50th anniversary of ordaining Lutheran women, the 40th anniversary of ordaining Lutheran women of color, and the 10th anniversary of LGBTQ+ individuals being able to serve freely. 

WTS joins the ELCA in celebrating the ways women, women of color, and LGBTQ+ persons have contributed to the life of the church (ELCA or otherwise!) and its people across the country by taking a look back (and forward) at some of the pioneering leaders from our own community.

Will join us by giving in honor of a WTS woman, woman of color, or LGBTQ+ faith leader who has impacted your life? Your gift makes it possible for WTS to continue preparing leaders like these for an ever-changing church in need of the good news of Jesus Christ.
