The process of ministering for females does not come easy, and most comes with encounters that causes hurt. Oftentimes, the female ministers are the greatest wounded healers, who are earnestly seeking safe places and sisterly connection, which offers the balm to continue serving faithfully. Preachers: Rev. Libby Davis-Manning (Lutheran); Rev. Rae Karim (Disciples of Christ); and Rev. Mihee Kim-Kort (Presbyterian and Princeton grad)
What a wonderful way to observe Good Friday by celebrating the width and breadth of ministerial female leadership. The Healing for Our Lives event will gather female ministers, from all contexts of ministry, in and around the Indianapolis area, to share in a worship celebration and fellowship around tables with a catered meal. The inspiring worship experience will include powerful liturgy, moving music, and three dynamic female preachers from varying backgrounds and seasons of ministry. The site for the event, Castleton United Methodist Church, is significant as this congregation is in its initial months of welcoming its first female lead pastor.
The Indianapolis Propylaeum presents the Marilyn K. Glick Women’s Enrichment Series, a multi-part celebration of women in central Indiana.

VIP tickets include a Meet and Greet reception with the speaker and reserved seating during the presentations.
