On September 23, 1995 at the Sligo Seventh-day Adventist Church in Maryland, Kendra Haloviak and Norma Osborn, along with Penny Shell, were ordained to Gospel Ministry. In a new documentary from Spectrum Media, Kendra and Norma talk about the experience and what it meant to them.

Weaving together archival footage from the event, and interviews with the women ordained on that day, this short film provides the stories of Seventh-day Adventists caught in the middle of the debate over women's ordination.
