Gallery of women in ministry


After posting Picture a Christian leader, with a collage of many faces of women in ministry, I’ve continued to receive images from women called to God’s work. This page holds the original collage along with additional photos. I’ll update the gallery periodically with new submissions.

I neither police nor endorse who belongs in this gallery. It’s an open table.

To add your face to this gallery, send a photo with your name and ministry role to:

If you were included in the original collage, please still feel free to send in a photo with your information. I’m also happy to receive links to stories or art about women in ministry.

I hope you’ll be encouraged by this collage and the gallery that follows, showing the faces of women in ministry. They are Methodist and baptist and Presbyterian and nondenominational and Episcopalian and Nazarene and pentecostal and of denominations I’m not naming. They serve as professors, superintendents, bishops, preachers, teachers, pastors, evangelists, academic deans, and in many other roles.

Their unveiled faces image Jesus.

Feel free to download and share this image. Posters and other prints are available at my Redbubble site.
