Should Women Be Pastors?

Does the Bible say women can’t be pastors? Does 1 Timothy chapter 3 show that women are not allowed to be overseers or deacons? Or is it actually a list of qualifications for women who desire to take on those responsibilities?

Join Monica Dennington as she goes straight to the Bible to find out how to tell the difference between a pastor and a Pharisee, and whether or not God thinks women should be pastors.

  1. Please do not misinterpret God’s word when he speaks in 1 Timothy 2 he is speaking on leadership principles. and those principles that were establish in creation. and if you are translating the language. I would love to translate with you. he said that a overseer must be a husband of 1 wife you cannot get around that. it has nothing to do with marriage but the order for which he has established


    • Mr. Williams, you obviously did not watch my video carefully. I do not misinterpret Scripture – I read it. You are offensive to suggest that I would mishandle the holy Word of God.

      In reality, you are trying to “get around” the fact that God gives women authority to teach and prophesy to men all throughout the Bible.

      Your assertion that Scripture somehow supports your disrespect for women in church leadership reveals not only poor (or non-existent) scholarship on your part, but also a lack of character. In short, you are not only wrong — you are rude.

      I am, however, willing to talk to you about Scripture — if, indeed, your pride will allow you to speak with a sister as an equal.

      Are you in church leadership? If so, what congregation do you serve?


    • You presume the right to speak to any woman you disagree with disrespectfully, even in her own forum. Not so long ago, many white people assumed the right to speak to any black person they chose with disrespect.

      Do you know who spearheaded the movement for the abolition of slavery and black suffrage?


      Do you know who their biggest opponents were?

      Baptist preachers spouting 1 Timothy 2:12. Religious men asserting that God says women can’t speak to men.

      It is reported that Abraham Lincoln said to Harriet Beecher Stowe, “So you’re the little woman who wrote the book that made this great (Civil) war!” What if she had taken your doctrine about women to heart? What if Harriet Beecher Stowe, knowing that Uncle Tom’s Cabin was a demand for reform, decided that it wasn’t her place as a women to write it?

      As a black man in America, Mr. Williams, you should ask yourself this question:

      “Where would I be today if the women who walked in the anointing of Jesus to set the captives free had listened to the men who told them they couldn’t lead?”

      Ask your wife what she thinks. Should you really be harassing women with the same anointing today…or should you be funding them?

      “So the LORD God said to the serpent… ‘And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers…’” Gen 3:14a, 15a (NIV)
