Martha Stearns Marshall
Month of Preaching
Please let us know if your church would be open to welcoming a woman to your church's pulpit in February 2017. Or please let us know if you or you know of a woman that would like the opportunity to preach, share a testimony, etc. during the month of February. Contact Megan Pike here.
Mark your calendar. Make plans now to participate this February in the Martha Stearns Marshall Month of Preaching.
Since 2007, Baptist Women in Ministry has invited Baptist churches to participate in Martha Stearns Marshall Month of Preaching by having a woman preach during the month of February. This annual event has been a deeply significant source of joy and discovery for many women and churches.
If your church has never had a woman preach, our hope is that you can prayerfully and thoughtfully take small steps to help move your church toward being open.
This is an opportunity for you to publicly voice your support of women in ministry, to be counted with other Baptist churches in celebrating the calling and gifts of women, and to remind your congregation that God does indeed call women to the work of the kingdom. But most importantly, this is an opportunity for your church to invite into your pulpit a woman who has never had the opportunity to preach. Use Martha Stearns Marshall Month as a time to invite and support a first-time preacher.
Martha Stearns Marshall Month of Preaching provides us all with a chance to celebrate–to celebrate God’s good work in our midst.
