Church leadership is exclusively male.

Reading I Timothy 2 and 3 and Titus 1 it cannot be clearer that Scripture forbids women in church office, whether it be deacon or elder.

“I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man…”

“if a man desire the office of a bishop….a bishop must be the husband of one wife…”

” let the deacons be the husbands of one wife..”

“if any be blameless, the husband of one wife..”

Elders at Covenant Protestant Reformed Church.

Our church order speaks exclusively of “brother” and “brethren” in the forms of ordination.
