Women in Ministry
Women in Ministry (WiM) is a ministry for all women affiliated with RTS that provides fellowship, fosters connection to the broader seminary community, equips each woman to build the kingdom in her respective calling, and encourages women to live passionately in submission to Christ.
WiM provides opportunities for connection through Bible studies and process groups, retreats, seminars, and fellowship events. We encourage the wives of students to take advantage of the spouse scholarship and enroll in or audit classes as they are able. Our hope is that all women will come away from seminary having experienced meaningful relationships and spiritual growth.

Freedom in the Fishbowl: Ministry Wives Gatherings
Monday | September 12, October 11, November 14 | 7:00 - 9:00pm | Sweeting's Home
Join Christina Sweeting (current student, and wife of Don Sweeting, RTSO President), Leigh Swanson (Associate Dean of Students and wife of David Swanson, Senior Pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Orlando), faculty wives and other student wives for an honest conversation about the blessings and challenges of being the wife of a pastor. This fall we will talk about caring for women who are hurting with an emphasis on developing listening skills, asking good questions, and knowing when to refer someone to a professional counselor.
The Sweeting’s home is located at:
2875 Willow Bay Terrace
Casselberry, FL 32707
(to get in the gate find “Sweeting” in the gate kiosk, dial the number, and Christina will let you in)
