I wasn’t there so I don’t fully know but a guest speaker came to the youth Sunday service ( I’m more of a many service kinda a gal) and he said that “women aren’t called on Jesus to lead”.
In England recently, there was a huge debate over female priests. I think a women can get a call to preach,lead an do important things in Christ. Ester managed to save her people and she was a woman.

Yes, women can preach and lead. If God is working through them, is it not a sign that he can call on others to do the same?

^ a good example of a lady being used by God in the preaching ministry, especially if you watch her Biblical study courses 🙂

I do not believe God calls women to preach to men. Joyce Meyer preaches mostly to ladies. God gives men and women different roles in the church as well as in the family. God calls men to lead and women to be helpers and to submit to their husbands as unto the Lord, and a lot of people get upset about this but these roles were designed by God and each is just as important as the other. Not that he can’t or won’t use us, he just uses us in different ways.

Yes. Women are called to preach just as much as men are. Possibly even more, it’s just not “socially acceptable”.

Yes, women can get called to preach.
The Bible makes this clear in several places. First, Galatians 3:28 says:
~There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, and there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus~
So first we see there is no discrimination in Christ.
Second, the Bible is clear we need to use the spiritual gifts God has given us: Romans 12:5-8
~Just as there are many parts to our bodies, so it is with Christ’s body. We are all parts of it, and it takes every one of us to make it complete, for we each have different work to do. So we belong to each other, and each needs all the others.
Acts 2:17 says
~And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy~
I suppose you could argue that prophesying and preaching are different–but how so? In each case you are sharing a message from God. Prophesying is not solely predicting the future–it’s sharing what God has told you.

Yes women do get called to preach. I got called to preach in 10th grade when I was on the leadership team at Grace Church in Des Moines, Iowa and even though I don’t really preach any more I know that I will eventually possibly next Saturday a little bit.

Hey Godsgirl2014! I live near Des Moines ( I go to school in Johnston and live in Grimes) and I’ve heard of Grace Church before. Maybe we could meet up! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org

Celby, there’s more than one Grace Church. Just FYI.
And yes. I do think so. However, I believe the term ” to get called to preach” is overrated. However the Bible does say women can’t preach, I just don’t believe that.

I Believe men are called to be preachers not women. But I see women as more missionaries because God gave women a special heart that is caring and wants to help people and do something. instead of just standing there. So I really think women should be missionaries instead of pastors.

I fail to see the logic in that. A pastor is someone who preaches God’s word to people. A missionary does the same thing, only in a different country.
