CEP has assembled seven women who are gifted trainers who canhelp the women in your church realize a Biblical perspective of their relationship with Christ, their family and the church. They will challenge and train women to understand their helper design, cultivate community and engage in life-changing ministries.
Aware of the growing number and significant leadership role of Directors of Women’s Ministries in local PCA churches, CEP continues to provide a defined fellowship aimed at equipping these women for ministries that unite with an overall Christian education and discipleship focus. Nate Shurden, teaching elder at First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi, was the speaker at the 2009 gathering.

For the first time, CEP took the Women in the Church leadership Conference on the road. It was truly a mountain top experience as over two hundred women traveled to Lookout Mountain, Georgia. March 10-12, 2009, to the PCA’s Covenant College.
PresWIC, Bible study, and local women’s ministries leaders, including PCA staff women, gathered to be equipped corporately and individually for kingdom ministry. They were part of this annual CEP event that trains leaders to pass on their training in order that every woman know Christ personally and be committed to extending His kingdom in her life, home, church, community, and throughout the world.

The 36th General Assembly, after many hours of committee and floor debate, answered Overture 9 in the negative, declining to establish a study committee. This action was taken in spite of a minority report that attempted to persuade the assembly to answer in the affirmative. As the coordinator of Christian Education and Publications, under whose oversight the Women in the Church is positioned in the PCA, a number of people have asked my opinion on the issue.
