Were there women elders in New Testament churches. | Marg. It links the deacons with the bishops in v. 8 and then links them to women in v. In I. Tim. 4 andPaul discussed the office of presbyter (elder). The usual translation is "older men" and "older women," but the Greek word is the same one used for elders elsewhere.

The point being that women should not hold the position of elder or deacon where they function like elders. The biblical basis for this is found in passages like 1 Tim. f and even f since this clearly refers to men as is evident by clause, “the husband of one wife” in One evangelical denomination and then another, is caving in and deciding that women can be appointed as elders.

The inevitable corollary is the appointment of women as senior pastors. Will this trend become a landslide, with those of us who hold out against it being labeled as intolerant bigots, the new "fundamental extremists" of the modern era.

In 1 Timothywe read, "If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task.". So women are seen as equals before God’s eyes and they will inherit the same rewards in the Kingdom as men.

They are co-heirs, co-inheritors, and co-equal. Those without husbands are under the authority of their pastors, elders, & deacons, but women are. Q: My church does not believe that women should be elders, based on the phrase in 1 Timothy 3 that says elders must have one wife.

Does this phrase really exclude women and single people from being elders. How should I approach this subject at my church.
