The Ambassador Award recognizes individuals (non-COSROW members) who are committed to the full inclusion of women, especially those who are on the margins of the church and society, through one or more of the following ways:
The person selected to receive the Ambassador Award for 2019 from the Iowa Conference Commission on the Status and Role of Women is Rose White.
Rose is a neighbor to everyone, and advocates for women on all levels. She makes sure single or hardworking moms have a chance to succeed by making sure their kids are provided for (often providing care or resources herself). She supports migrant women workers and their businesses, and she goes out of her way to be sure the women in her own family have adequate care, resources and chances to succeed.
Rose is a district UMW officer and teaches kids at Mission U, helps with local schools and daycares, cares for her own grandchildren, and helps anyone in need, especially women, no matter what their needs are. She is active in the Emmaus community, auxiliary, and is the mission's coordinator for her church.
COSROW is receiving $1,500 this year to support their ministries as inclusive people of God reaching out to care for a hungering and hurting world. These funds are made possible with the apportionment gifts of the United Methodist churches of Iowa.
Nominations will be accepted until March 31 of the year under consideration. Any person or group may submit a nomination by sending a completed nomination form to your COSROW representative or to the Conference Center.
All members of Iowa COSROW serve on the selection committee. The Ambassador Award recipient will be recognized during Iowa Annual Conference.
