The mission of RevGalBlogPals, Inc. is to support and encourage women in ministry. Our education events are designed for clergywomen, as well as women engaged in other ministry work, from all denominations and age groups. Read more about RevGalBlogPals here.
Save the date and join RevGalBlogPals at the Franciscan Center in Tampa, Florida, for Big Event 2020: From Vision to Action. Registration will open on June 1, 2019.
Three outstanding clergywomen will share their stories and help participants explore how a vision for ministry becomes action in the world.

REVive Iona 2 – April 18-25, 2020
Our REVive programs are smaller retreats, intended for groups of 20-25, with a more contemplative feeling. We will be hosting another REVive at Bishop’s House, Iona, in 2020. Watch this space for details coming in Spring, 2019.
A Past Event We Hope to Repeat
March 24 – 26, 2017 at The Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia
RevGalBlogPals, in a joint effort with The Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, offered a retreat specifically for women considering a call to professional ministry in the church.
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 shared their stories, insights, and experiences about their journey.
We would be glad to repeat this event at other seminaries around the country. To explore the possibility for your seminary or theological school, please contact our Executive Director Martha Spong, revgalblogpals (at) gmail (dot) com.
