Can females be deacons? I have been in churches that held to complementarianism in regarding the role of women in ministry in that they could not hold the office of pastor, Sunday school teacher, nor any position that teaches or preaches to men including the office of deacon and elder. I have been to other churches that argued that women could be deacons, they just could not preach or teach men, and so forth, as each church has their own interpretation of scripture in this regard. My own look at the scripture I would argue that a woman cannot be a elder, nor pastor, nor Sunday school teacher over men, but regarding deacon I am not sure. Are you? What say you?
