Northern German Union Conference Votes To Ordain Women Pastors

On April 23, 2012, the Northern German Union Conference, which is within the Euro-Africa Division, voted (160-47) to “ordain female pastors within the NDV [Union] equally to their male colleagues.” This historic vote is particularly significant as a action of the union constituency and not just the executive committee. They have actually amended their constitution to provide for the ordination of all pastors without regard to gender.
