Abstract:
This study used a questionnaire designed to identify the professional and personal characteristics of women ministers in Arizona. Information was elicited on general demographics, careers, and personal life. Subjects were identified from a list and by recommendation. Twenty-six (n = 26) questionnaires were returned. Frequencies and percentages were reported as well as verbatim responses to open ended questions. The results appeared to reveal that as a group the subjects indicated service to god and fellow men/women as major reasons for entering the ministry, as definitions of success and as career goals. Most were comparatively new to the field, had experienced various barriers to advancement and effectiveness, were only children, had mentors and considered themselves to be successful. Almost all of the subjects felt that they could make unique contributions to the ministry as women. Loneliness, isolation and overwork were major stressors. Self-esteem was high and depression low.
