    Even with the pastoral classes, some modifications could be made. For instance, preaching classes could help with public speaking---women teaching large audiences of women is almost always considered acceptable.

    Even pastoral care courses could help for training in counseling women, serving as a director of women's ministry, etc.

    In Baptist polity, the church oversees the ordination process, and theological study need not always lead to ordination.
