Women of All Ages
Members of The Order of the Daughters of the King are women and girls between the ages of seven and 107 who want a closer walk with God. We are Christian women, both lay and ordained, who are strengthened through the discipline of a Rule of Life and supported through the companionship of our sisters. We are all at different stages of our Christian journey – some have just begun and others have been on this path for a long time. But wherever we are on our sacred journeys, our primary goal is the same: To know Jesus Christ and make Him known to others.
Membership in The Order is open to women at every stage of life. The diversity of different ages strengthens and enriches our chapters. Younger women benefit from the discipleship of experienced spiritual mentors, and older women are invigorated by the fresh faith and energy of youth.
Junior Daughters are young women and girls from ages 7 to 21 who make a promise to pray daily and serve our Lord Jesus Christ. Membership is extended to all baptized girls, regardless of denomination. Junior Daughters meet in chapters of three or more girls, under the guidance of a senior Daughter who serves as Directress. Upon admission, Junior Daughters receive a silver Greek fleury cross with the initials FHS (For His Sake) as a symbol of their promise of daily prayer and service.

Daughters at Large
A Daughter at Large (DAL) is a member of The Order of the Daughters of the King® who, because of logistics, geography, or other reasons, is a member of a church with no chapter (see The National Bylaws of The Order, Article III Section 3.B). She wears her cross daily, undertakes a Rule of Life, and pays her annual dues.
