Paul wrote in 1 Timothy 2:12, “But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” This verse is cited frequently by opponents of women in ministry. However, the United Pentecostal Church International ordains women to preach, teach, and serve in leadership roles. How does the UPCI reconcile this practice with Paul’s statement?

Dr. David K. Bernard answers this question by noting examples of women in spiritual leadership in the Old Testament, the early church, and the modern Pentecostal movement. In doing so, he makes the case for women playing an active role in ministry today, including preaching and teaching God’s Word.
