Women in Ministry: Cheryl Allen

Ethics Daily has recently run a compelling and inspirational series of articles (see here and here) on the Rev. Cheryl Allen, who is believed to be the only female Baptist senior pastor in all of Africa. She is the former pastor of Berea Baptist Church, which is located in one of the roughest, highest crime neighborhoods in Johannesburg, South Africa. Presently, she serves on the executive board of the Baptist Union of Africa. She is best known for her work with Door of Hope, a ministry that she founded to save abandoned HIV-infected infants, nurse them to health, and put them up for adoption.
