Role of Women


The Role of Women In the Church

by Dr. Wayne Hendrickson

… concerning the topic of women in ministry. For centuries tradition has taught against and strongly opposed women in leadership. However, with research and careful study, according to the Scriptures in both the Old and New Testaments, one conclusion is clear - that women are gifted, called, anointed, appointed and commissioned for a variety of leadership roles.

Most of the misunderstandings stem from reading the Scriptures with a western mentality, and a failure to correctly translate ancient Greek and Hebrew texts. Other obstacles have been a lack of knowledge of the history surrounding the biblical texts as they were written, as well as, the historical perceptions of women at the time these passages were translated into English. This has caused tremendous error to become spoken or unspoken doctrine concerning the role of women in leadership.

With a more thorough study of the Bible, you will discover women judges, prophets, teachers, military generals, apostles, evangelists, pastors, and leaders of nations. Some of the topics covered in Dr. Hendrickson’s book on The Role of Women In The Church are:

  • Women In The Old Testament
  • Women Of The Gospels
  • Women In The New Testament
  • The Romans Sixteen Women
  • Diana, The Goddess Of Ephesus
  • Jewelry
  • Practical Keys To Interpreting Scripture
  • Proper Understanding of Submission
  • Are Women To Be Silent In The Church
  • Paul’s Response To Women Being Silent In The Church
  • The Lifestyles Of Christian Wives
  • Head Coverings
  • Women At The Turn Of The Century
