United Council of Churches (UCC) strongly believes in recognizing and supporting the contribution of women in the ministry of the church. We believe in the value of women in all aspects of ministry with the exception of those areas that exercise governmental authority within the church. We believe a woman can teach and lead within any of the vast array of ministry roles and positions as long as she demonstrates a biblically qualifying lifestyle.
UCC provides equal opportunities to women and girls for jobs, capacity building, vocational and technical skills and economic wellbeing. UCC also ensures equal participation of women in all programs, projects and activities of the council to empower them for building a healthy balanced congregations, community and society at large
