Abstract
The purpose of this project was to discover the primary hindrances that women face in fulfilling their call to ministry. This was done by constructing a survey that was bases primarily off of 11 themes that surfaced in the contemporary literature. A total of 75 surveys completed by women clergy (senior pastors, assistant pastors, ministries of youth and children, professors, chaplains) in 18 different denominations were analyzed. Out of all 24 statements, all 11 themes were hindrances for at least 15 women. For 19 statements, at least 1 in every 3 women dealt with the hindrance presented.
