Evaluation of the Practice of the Apostolic Church Lawna Territory, Nigeria on Women’s Role in Church Leadership


In this paper women's role in church leadership is critically examined with reference to The Apostolic Church LAWNA Territory, Nigeria. The doctrine of the church places limitation on the role women can perform/play in the church, for instance women are not allowed to minister in the congregation that contain men and women. Women can only rise to the office of a deaconess and can be appointed by the Area Council on the recommendation of the District Council. She must be a full member of the church . The Apostolic church view is in contrast with the Egalitarian thought as articulated in Gal. 3:28.
