Description

In this qualitative study conducted at the Andrews University Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary, twenty six spouses belonging to female clergy marital couples were asked separately about their perception of the woman’s divine calling to ministry. Spouses’ individual responses were coded and categorized. Special attention was given to the husbands’ perception versus their wives’ perception of the concept of a woman being called to serve as a pastor. While women seemed to have a high level of confidence in their unique spiritual experience, particular differences were found between the views of their clergy and non-clergy husbands about their wives’ ministerial calling.
