Women's History Month at Cedarville University

Display of books about female missionaries.

“We are women, and my plea is let me be a woman, holy through and through, asking for nothing but what God wants to give me, receiving with both hands and with all my heart whatever that is.”

— Elisabeth Elliot, Let Me Be a Woman

As we enter into the month of March, you will see your calendars marked as “Women’s History Month.” In honor of many praiseworthy women in the heritage of the Christian faith, I want to call your attention to the display on Women Missionaries: Warriors of the Faith in the Centennial Library. In a partnership between the Kingdom Diversity Advisory Council of Cedarville University and the Centennial Library, we have displayed various biographical works on significant female missionaries across the globe. With the aid of our wonderful library staff, student intern Morgan Rupp compiled a vast array of celebratory works for students, faculty, and staff. My personal favorites include works on Elisabeth Elliot, Amy Carmichael, and Corrie Ten Boom, as their lives and ministries have had a profound impact on me.

I know many of the numerous women in leadership at Cedarville University have been greatly impacted by the women of faith who have gone before us. Their dedication to the Gospel, faithfulness to serve, and willingness to follow God’s call have impacted many of our desires to pursue educational avenues in order to accomplish vocational ministry in a place like Cedarville. From Vice President to Associate Vice Presidents, from Registrar to Deans and department Directors, Cedarville University has been a place where women have had the privilege of stewarding God-given talents and abilities to love God, love others, work with biblical integrity, and pursue excellence in all our efforts.
