Women in Ministry

Tennessee CBF has been known for its advocacy of women in ministry since its inception. Believing God calls women to serve in any and all leadership roles in the church, we provide opportunities for women clergy to network and find support for their calling. In addition, we encourage congregations affiliated with TCBF to consider calling women when there are ministerial vacancies.

Tennessee CBF has encouraged women who are called to ministry by providing scholarships to help offset the cost of seminary. We also recognize one person, church or organization each year at our general assembly for their support of women in ministry (Betty Galloway Advocacy for Women in Ministry Award).
