Who We Are

Presbyterian Women, Inc., is the women’s organization in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). We are a community of more than 200,000 women who participate in Presbyterian Women (PW) and align our ministry and hearts around a shared purpose, the PW Purpose.

Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves
      • to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study,
      • to support the mission of the church worldwide,
      • to work for justice and peace, and
      • to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.

These commitments are lovingly carried out in Presbyterian Women groups in congregations, presbyteries and synods. At the national level, Presbyterian Women provides the resources, direction and opportunities to fulfill the organization’s mission and ministry. Presbyterian Women’s connectional structure allows you to participate as deeply and/or broadly in the organization and its commitments as you wish.
