Celebrating Adventist Women
During the month of March, women are celebrated globally, and March 8 is International Women's Day.
This month Women's Ministries also celebrates women. Our women have always played an important part in the work of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, serving in almost all capacities and filling a wide range of roles. These women, highlighted on our webpage for Adventist Women of Distinguished Service, represent thousands of women contributing to the growth and well-being of our global church, as well as the courageous, dedicated women who helped shape our church in its early stages.
