The mission of RevGalBlogPals is to create community and provide resources for women in Christian ministry. Our continuing education events are open to all clergywomen, women church professionals, women religious, and women discerning a call to Christian ministry, as well as supportive women otherwise engaged in the life of the Church universal. We welcome women of all races, abilities, orientations, generations, denominations, and nations.

May 4, 2017 at The Steeple, Dundee, Scotland

A Past Event We Hope to Repeat

Here Am I: Women Responding to God’s Call

March 24 – 26, 2017 at The Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia

RevGalBlogPals, in a joint effort with The Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, will offer a retreat specifically for women considering a call to professional ministry in the church. We hope you will share this event with women you know who are currently in discernment.

Unfortunately, a women’s call to ministry is not always readily affirmed and so this event aims to provide women of all ages and experience with a space to explore what God might be doing in their life. Talented pastors representing numerous different denominations will share their stories, insights, and experiences about their journey. Housing will be provided on campus and some meals supplied. There is no charge for the program.

This event is for women of all ages and denominations, but space is limited! Link to the registration page is on the event page.

We hope to repeat this event at other seminaries around the country during the 2017-18 academic year. To explore the possibility for your seminary or theological school, please contact RevGals Executive Director Martha Spong, revgalblogpals (at) gmail (dot) com.

    1. Hi, Hope~
      Our events are indeed open to clergywomen outside our ring. Unfortunately we did not meet our minimum for REVive. Thanks for the reminder to update this page!

        1. REVive in Cleveland was cancelled, yes, as stated in my previous comment. We are focusing our energy on the upcoming Big Event 9.0 in January, 2016. Big Event 10 is scheduled tentatively for February 2017, with information to be posted on our website in spring, 2016.


We hope you'll join the conversation!
