South Pacific Division Church leaders have reaffirmed their support for women in ministry following the decision to formally warn six union conferences for practices related to ordination.
The South Pacific Division’s support of women in ministry is within the General Conference policy and manuals and solidly based on the biblical beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
A speech of note set the tone for the commissioning service of Avondale seminarian Dr Wendy Jackson. Avondale College of Higher Education president Professor Ray Roennfeldt’s welcome expressed his frustration with the worldwide Seventh-day Adventist Church’s decision not to give regional divisions the autonomy to ordain women.
