Should Women Be Pastors?

Should women be pastors? This argument has transcended generations and is still causing division in the body of Christ. There has been a lot of confusion on this matter, each with an opinion and biblical references backing up their points. You may have noticed that a lot of people are against the idea of a woman being their pastor. Some have refused to visit churches where a femalShould Women Be Pastorse presides as pastor while some others do not mind being led by a woman. They read the rest of the scriptures as regards to women in leadership, through the lens of 1st Timothy 2:11-15. Traditions and laws have forbidden the woman from taking the lead in the house of God. Well, it is a good thing that we have the Word of God and the Holy Spirit dwelling within us. Before we start to see how true or how false their opinions are, let us define according to the Word, who the woman is, God’s purpose for her and how it relates to the pastoral call. Let’s take off our gender-based sentimental hats, rid ourselves of every opinion and look at it with a fresh pair of eyes. 

God’s Purpose for the Woman

The woman was not an afterthought. She was neither created out of necessity, merely because man needed assistance. She was created to dominate just like the man. Yes! She was created after the man but she isn’t inferior to him. Gen 1:26 tells us that God made Man in his own image and likeness and he created them male and female. God is Spirit, the real you [man] is spirit and a spirit has no gender. Whatever God said to the man, He referred male and female. When He gave the dominion mandate in verse 28, He gave it to both male and female. The woman and the man are equal spiritually but different physically; complementary in nature. They were both given the dominion mandate but they were to carry out this assignment differently. The man has the leadership position as he was the first one to be put in the garden. The woman has the power of influence, designed to help the man. She brings a different way of service to the table. This may spoil your traditional beliefs and what you have been taught from the onset, but please read on with an open mind.

Should Women Be Pastors? There is a lot more to see and learn.

Who is a pastor?

A pastor is one of the five-fold ministry, a leader who takes care of the flock, nursing them to spiritual health. The next logical question to ask is this: “Were there any female leaders in the Bible times?”

Should Women Be Pastors? – Some Examples of Women in Leadership


Taking a stroll to Micah 6:4 (NIV), it reads: I brought you up out of Egypt and redeemed you from the land of slavery. I sent Moses to lead you, also Aaron and MiriamIt is very important to note that God himself acknowledged Miriam as a leader. She was part of the team of leaders who led the people of Israel to the promise land. She served alongside her brothers, Moses and Aaron. Like Moses, she made several mistakes during her time as a leader but she repented of them. You’d notice that she was not mentioned as much as Moses or Aaron was. This is because women lead differently from men. Men have a dominant attitude, announcing his authority through words and actions but this is different for a woman. Women lead through influence. This subtle way is not really noticed and taken for granted at times but its effect is felt greatly.

Back to our question, Should Women be pastors? Well, read on. 


Deborah, who was a prophetess, a judge and the wife of Lappidoth was another great leader in the bible times. She knew her identity as a woman and understood her God-given authority; the influence and power, given to her. Deborah understood that her position as a judge was not a means for her to oppress the people. This was evident in the way she addressed Barak. The way she led in humility and understanding was so great that Barak refused to go to war without her. He didn’t mind the fact that he would lose the glory of the victory to a woman [Judges 4:8-9].

So what do you think, should women be pastors?


The Bible also identifies Esther, Huldah, Anna, four daughters of Philip and several others. These women understood their God-given purpose and took the lead without disrespecting the position and authority of the man. There is nothing wrong with a woman being a pastor. They have their own unique role to play. The way they lead may be different from men but God totally approves of it. After all, He created them and God never creates anything to fail.

Should Women be Pastors? – Paul’s View

Paul was one of the apostles who dominated the earth through his ministry. He mentioned some things in his letters to the church in Corinth [1st Cor 14:34] and Ephesus [1st Timothy 2:11-15] that forbids women to participate in leadership roles. I believe his intent has been greatly misunderstood. Paul addressed the matter with regard to the happenings in the church at the time. He was speaking to the women and men alike who were struggling with the negative effects of the fall and were still yet to grasp the significance of what Jesus did on the cross.

Gal 3:28 had Paul saying this,

There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ.” He addressed our spirit-man; the one living in our physical bodies, male and female alike. Anyone who walks in the Spirit is not bound by the Law. The curse is broken. We need to stop living in the past, the chains of the law and stop trying to put God in a box. God’s ways are totally from ours and so are His thoughts. God will use anyone that has made himself or herself available to be used by him.


Just like Myles Munroe of blessed memory would say,

let us ask ourselves which is more important, culture or Christ? Did Jesus ever command a woman to be silent or rebuke her from leading and preaching the Word? Think about these things and do not let culture define God’s standards to you.

Should women be pastors?

Yes! I believe so. In practice, I have discovered that women in ministry care passionately more than men in some cases because of their nature. Many female pastors are also blessed with the great support of their husbands. Kathryn Kuhlman was one of the greatest women preachers who walked the face of the earth. The same goes for Joyce Meyer, another great woman of God. We need to realise that God’s plan for the woman in all areas including leadership has been restored. If you are in Christ and you have the Holy Spirit leading you, God can use you to feed his flock, needless of your gender.

If Jesus did not condemn it, I wouldn’t condemn it either and so should you.

Bible Verses For Women – Her Purpose

The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. So, the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals. But for Adam no suitable helper was found. So, the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.” That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. -Genesis 2:18-24

Bible Verses For Women – Her Design

A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value… She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue… Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. Proverbs 31:10-31

Her Design

In the same way, the women are to be worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything. -1st Timothy 3:11

The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down. –Proverbs 14:1

A foolish child is a father’s ruin, and a quarrelsome wife is like the constant dripping of a leaky roof. -Proverbs 19:13

It is better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife. –Proverbs 21:9

Bible Verses For Women – Her Love

Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which He is the Savior. –Ephesians 5:22-23

Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. -1 Peter 3:1-2

Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good… –Titus 2:3-5

Bible Verses For Women – Her Beauty

I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God. A woman should learn in quietness and full submission… –1 Timothy 2:9-15

She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. –Proverbs 31:25

God is within her, she will not fall. –Psalm 46:5


Bible Verses For Women – Her Strength

Under His wings, you will find refuge. -Psalm 9:1

Don’t worry about anything, instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. -Philippians 4:6-8

By the grace of God, I am what I am. -1 Corinthians 15:10

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not onto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path. -Proverbs 3:5-6

Her Strength

Blessed is she who believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her. -Luke 1:45

Be strong, brave and fearless. You are never alone. -Joshua 1:9

Mightier than the waves of the sea is His love for you. -Psalm 93:4

And in Christ you have been brought to fullness. -Colossians 2:10

Her Strength…

God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. -2nd Tim 1:7

Bible Verses For Women – Her Future

“For I know the thoughts and the plans I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. -Jeremiah 29:11

The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still. -Exodus 14:14

I will never leave you or forsake you. -Joshua 1:5

Her Future

You are altogether beautiful, my darling, beautiful in every way. -Song of Solomon 4:7

Whenever you feel unloved, unimportant, or insecure, remember to whom you belong. -Ephesians 2:19-22

My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. -Psalm 73:26


It is not fancy hair, gold jewelry, or fine clothes that should make you beautiful. No, your beauty should come from inside you –the beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. That beauty will never disappear and it is worth very much to God. -1 Peter 3:3-4

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. –Joshua 1:9

She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. -Proverbs 31:26

It is worthy to note that

You can only get the true value of something when you focus on extracting everything useful from it until you become satisfied. That is the essence of this exercise. You get to know God for yourself, your identity in Him and His will for women. This way, you can stop looking to men for validation, identification and security.  You will start having the confidence in who you are in Christ.

Let these bible verses for women speak to your hearts whether you are a stay at home mom, a professional woman or for those women in ministry of there. 

God bless!

Pastors Kids – Get Them Involved Early

Many times, we hear of pastors kids who grew to become very wayward adults. This is very rampant. Well, I think there are so many reasons why this happens. However, in this post, I want to encourage women in ministry to consider introducing their children to ministry in very friendly ways. pastors kids

Get Them Involved Early!!!

As a missionary, I have discovered that children love to be active. They may forget what you told them to do and forget to acts as pastors kids. However, they will never forget the experience they had, reached out to people in the soup kitchen.

Pastors kids see the challenges their parents have, first hand. As their parents continue to struggle with these challenges, they may get confused. They would start to think that their parents are pretending and covering up those challenges. Depending on how free it is to communicate at home, the kids may not have the guts to ask mom or dad. This results in them growing up with bitterness, leading to every other evil works.


It is important to have a free communication line between ministers and the pastors’ kids. That way you are not coercing your kids into what they did not themselves choose to do especially as they become older in age. You must respect their views as part of the family.

As they grow up to become teenagers and eventually leave the home, what you desire is that they will choose to serve God with the whole of their heart. I would suggest that you find out what you can do together as a family while they are still at home and also do a research on what they could get involved with as they enter college. There are mission trips for college students.


The advancements of the kingdom of our dear Lord is why we do what we do. My desire and prayer are that pastors kids with so much confusion today will discover a loving God that cares about them, and that they will genuinely know the Lord, and grow to become great influencers in their own generation as well.

Juanita Bynum

When the name Juanita Bynum is mentioned, the first thought that drops in my heart is like, “Oh hey! That’s the prophetess who sang Behind the veil…” That song was one of my favorite that really helped me transition into the new life.

Juanita Bynum, a Georgia-based televangelist, prophetess and author of the books “Walking in Your Destiny,” “Heart Matters,” and “No More Sheets” amongst great books and songs as well, is one of America’s top female pastors.  She also has a number of accomplishments in the musical industry which ranks high in the gospel music category. She is the CEO of Juanita Bynum Enterprises, a multi-faceted lifestyle and empowerment product company based in New York.The testimony of Juanita’s life, an evidence that something that was once dead and condemned can be restored and brought to life again by the Holy Spirit, is not something you get to hear about everyday. She tells her story of how she was abused in her marriage, involved in lesbianism and drug use at some point in her life, inspiring other women to walk away from abusive situations and walk to Christ.

Here’s a brief history on her life.

Born January 16, 1959, Juanita Bynum is an American Pentecostal televangelist, author, actress and a powerful gospel singer. She is one of five children of Elder & Mrs. Thomas Bynum.

Kim Burrell

Pastor Kim Burrell is one woman who greatly inspires me through her songs and messages. Her captivating voice carries the power of the Holy Spirit that encourages the hearts of people all over the world. Born on August 26, 1972, is an American gospel singer from Houston, Texas. She is also the daughter of a pastor in the Church of God in Christ (COGIC).

She has been also featured on B.E.T.’s Celebration of Gospel, Lift Every Voice, as well as the Bobby Jones Gospel Show. She has other great accomplishments as well but one thing that I love and admire about her is her ability to stand firmly in the truth, regardless of the cost. That’s a trait you don’t get to see often.

Serita Jakes

Mrs. Serita A. Jakes, wife of TD Jakes is one great woman of God with a very inspiring testimony. God was really intentional about her life, strengthening her and leading her through rough paths till she finally learned to stand in Him. Throughout her nearly 30 years of marriage, she has diligently served alongside her husband, Bishop T. D. Jakes, with purpose and precision. She has ministered greatly to women through her books, stage plays [her husband] and messages, containing great words of wisdom.

She serves as the Executive Director of The Potter’s House Women’s Ministries, reaching to women from all walks of life.

Her book, The Princess Within, which has sold over 200,000 copies, is very inspirational, aimed at encouraging women who are victims of one form of abuse or another to break the silence, break away from the situation by the power of God and begin healing. In all, she has been a great blessing to this generation as one of the female pastors in America.

Joyce Meyer

Amongst the great female pastors in America, Joyce Meyer is one who has made such great impact to this generation.

Joyce Meyer, born on June 4, 1943, is a popular televangelist, charismatic Christian speaker and author. She and her husband Dave Meyer, have four grown children, and live outside St. Louis, Missouri. Her ministry, Joyce Meyer Ministries Organization, is headquartered near the St. Louis suburb of Fenton, Missouri. Through the ministry, she impacts the lives of others, blessing them just as God has blessed her.

Joyce Meyer was briefly a member of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in St. Louis. She started leading an early-morning Bible class at a local cafeteria and became active in Life Christian Center, a charismatic church in Fenton. Within a few years, Meyer was the church’s associate pastor. She also began airing a daily 15-minute radio broadcast on a St. Louis radio station. In 1985, she resigned as associate pastor and founded her own ministry, initially called “Life in the Word.” She began airing her radio show on six other stations from Chicago to Kansas City. In 1993, her husband Dave suggested that they start a television ministry.[1] Initially airing on superstation WGN-TV in Chicago and Black Entertainment Television (BET), her program, now called Enjoying Everyday Life, is still on the air today.

Her testimony of the abuse she faced while growing up is of great inspiration to many women especially those who have faced the same challenges. Joyce Meyer Ministries has reached out to people in the third world countries, including those around her, sharing the love of Christ and disciplining the nations for Him.

Beth Moore

Beth Moore, one of her greatest blessings to the body of Christ is one of the female pastors in America I know and love because of her diligent works. Born on June 16th, 1957, she is a renowned American Evangelists, author and Bible study teacher. She is married to Keith Moore with two grown daughters, Amanda and Melissa. Both daughters, along with son-in-law Curtis Jones, work with their mother at Living Proof Ministries. Beth Moore committed her life to spreading the gospel at the age of 18. She currently attends Bayou City Fellowship, Houston, Texas, where her son-in-law, Curtis Jones, is lead pastor.

She founded Living Proof Ministries, a biblical women based organization, located in Houston, Texas. This ministry aids women who desire to model their lives on godly principles. Alongside other ministries such as LifeWay Christian Resources, Beth Moore conducts more than a dozen conferences, known as “Living Proof Live”, around the United States annually.She also teaches through her radio show, Living Proof with Beth Moore, and appears as a regular on the television program LIFE Today. She occasionally writes books, Bible study guides and video resources to make Bible study time with the Lord easier for you to receive.


As much as there is a huge class in America that do not believe that the bible permits women to hold leadership positions in the church over men. Paul speaks to the Ephesians and states that women should learn from the husbands at home.

Today more than ever before, the list of female pastors in America keeps getting longer. In short, many women in ministry find it interesting now especially because of the easy to combine ministry with family life. Women love to express themselves and I believe God loves to pour His Spirit on many women up till today.
