Screen Shot 2016-05-04 at 4.35.54 PMI fondly remember the day at the 2006 session of the Virginia Annual Conference when we paused from the business of the day to recreate the General Conference debate fifty years prior which would grant full clergy rights to women.

In my twenty years of ministry, I have had the opportunity to work with several wonderful women who were faithful clergy colleagues and gifted servants of Christ.

Yet while we have granted equal clergy rights to women, sixty years has not closed the pay gap between men and women clergy.
