The Pentecostal Church was one of the first religious groups to ordain women into leadership roles.

Recommended Posts

In many Pentecostal churches, women are given the opportunity to serve as preachers, missionaries and some cases as the pastors. Most cite Joel 2 as their reasoning, which says, “Your sons and your daughters will .” Female roles in the church extend to the movement’s beginning. Charles Fox Parham (whose student Agnes was first to speak in tongues) trained women for ministry. He also commissioned women to establish church plants. Seymour (who headed the Azusa Street Revival) also allowed both men and women to preach and be sent out as pastors and missionaries. While each sect of modern Pentecostalism differs on how the approach women in leadership positions, many churches ordain women or even place them in roles to lead congregations.
