Women sometimes exuberate more devotion, dedication and committment to the church. They are proven great prayer warriors and intercessors. I know God has given his attestation to this, when speaking to Jeremiah in chapter 9, advising him to call for the women to pray and that they should teach their daughters (the younger women,) to lament on behalf of Israel of old. Women also make the best singers, as compared to most men.


It is a known fact that in all of our churches today, women out number men. In seeking the Lord and receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit, they sometimes are ahead of the men in some congregations. In giving, one can count on most women to do so willingly and in abundance, in spite of their penury(poverty.)  One biblical example of this is found in Luke 21:1-4 (The story of the widow's mite.)


Women's hearts tend to be softer and more compassionate than those of most men. The apostle Peter has attested to this in 1 Peter 3:7, by refering to them as the weaker vessel. Their role as mothers make them the perfect nurturers and teachers of children. As for hospitality and charitable works, most women can be depended on to fulfil these roles effectively.


Biblical examples of this are: ABIGAIL (1Samuel 25,) THE WIDOW OF ZAREPHATH (1Kings 17:8-16) THE SHUNAMITE WOMAN(II Kings 4:8-37) and DORCAS (Actcts 9:36-43.)


IN NO TIME OR PLACE IN THE SCRIPTURES DO WE FIND ANY REFERENCE OR INFERENCE AS TO A WOMAN LEADING A CONGREGATION OR PREACHING TO A GROUP OF MEN OR WOMAN.


QUESTION: What do you believe is the role of a woman in the Ministry?

the reason is because  the men are not playing their role in the church  and we the women are more commited they  are not commited to the word of God where rightous living  is concerned so we the women have to do what  the men should be doing

I agree that women should not lead the flock of God unless a man is not present or worthy but never forget that women are sometimes used by God to judge Isreal at different times remember Deborah she was a prophetess and judge Judges 4:4-5 KJV)

I am so glad this post is re-open, and i hope in the light of the scriptures our eyes will be open to biblical truths and not man's theory.

Since the subject in question is such a highly controversial one, and not too many bible commentators are willing to embark on this subject in its entirety, one can hardly find any literature that will deal completely with this subject  from a biblical standpoint.

Questions for Study and Discussion

1. Should women teach men in church service?

     1Timothy 2:11-15

2. Should women preach in the church?

     1Corinthians 14:34, 35

Note: The definition of words should always be explained as to the context of the scripture in which they are written.

The definition of Usurp: (Authenteo- Greek) is (1) to take or assume ( power, a position, property, rights, etc.) ( 2) to hold in possession by force or without right.

The definition of Teach: (Didasko- Greek) means to give instructions.

The definition of Learn: (Manthano- Greek) means to learn in any way, or to understand.

Thedefinition of Silence: ( Hesuchia (hay-soo-khee-ah- Greek) means stillness, quietness, undisturbing, peaceable. "Silence" as defined in  "The Virtue's English Dictionary" is: (1)  a refraining from speech or from making noise; (2) absence of any sound or noise, stillness.

"Silence" does not always mean not  uttering a word. Notice the second part of the definition #1-"refraining from making a noise"

Note: Speak (Laleo- Greek) means to talk ( i.e) utter words - preach, say, tell,  utter. "Speak"  as defined by "The Virtue's English Dictionary" is to , (1) to utter words with the ordinary voice; talk, (2) to express or communicate opinions, feelings, ideas, etc., (3) to make speech, or deliver an address or lecture, discourse. Speak and talk are generally understood to be synonymous. (4) but "speak" often connotes a formal address to an auditor or audience, as in " who is speaking at the dinner?" Though everyone will talk, in this case the "speak" reference is reserved for the formal speaker. WHen are gathered together to arrange a church service, the question is often asked," who will speak today?"

" Speak" used in this context is referring to the preacher for the day. This definition coincides with the Apostle Paul's statement in 1 Corinthians 14: 34
