Statement on Women

At Shepherds Theological Seminary we are dedicated to the biblical view of men and women and their relationship to each other in the home and church. We affirm the Danvers Statement on manhood and womanhood, believing that God has appointed men and men only to the Elder/Pastor position. We also affirm that God has honored women by appointing many ministry positions to them within the church, parachurch organizations and ministries, educational institutions, and mission agencies. We believe that a rigorous seminary education will greatly enhance a woman’s abilities to fulfill these ministries while at the same time enriching her spiritual life.
