Does The AALC ordain women as pastors?
Our position is that from a scriptural and confessional standpoint, the pastoral office is restricted to men. We do, however, recruit and train women to be trained Deaconesses who are then called by churches to supplement the pastoral staff and to augment the ministry of the local church.
