This resource is presented with the hope that women will realize their potential to lead in roles other than pastorate in their local congregations. It is to be noted that non-denominational and denominational leaders have written articles based on their pre-supposed positions of women and their leadership roles in the church.

  1. Women Church Leaders in the New Testament
  2. Bible Women
  3. The New Testament Church—The Role of Women
