Why Women Should Be Given Equal Consideration For Church Leadership As Men
As we know men are to serve as "Heads," receiving prominence and giving loving initiative. So it is natural that men might take on leadership roles. And given their general greater physical strength - and given the woman's priority calling as the nurturer of her children (including the commitment in biblical times to breastfeed her children for many years!) men naturally assumed most leadership roles in society. But this doesn't mean God commands it to be this way. In other words, certainly men often do make good leaders but that doesn't mean that women can't make good leaders.
