is not a privilege or a right of an individual. People do not become leaders so that they can get respect or be fully human, or Christian. According to Klenke (2017), a leader is somebody with responsibility and authority over a group of people or an organization. With authority comes responsibility and service to others. In 2 Kings 22:14-20, God uses prophetess Hildah to authorize King Hilkiah, the priests, and other people, most of them men. This, among other reasons, is a clear indication that women can play the roles of a leader in the church. They are able to set examples, guide, teach, be able to teach and have a good reputation. People are able to look for spiritual leadership in women, as authority is not based on gender. They are equally significant in roles in evangelism and equal coworkers as Paul and the scriptures put out. The Holy Spirit gave the mandate to both men and women; to go out and spread the gospel; the women are playing this role quite well.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
