Women’s Ministries Emphasis

 

While Antietam Biblical College recognizes and affirms that the Bible limits the offices of Pastor and Deacon to men (1Ti. 3:2, 12), the Scriptures also place a strong emphasis on training mature women to mentor younger women (Titus 2:1, 3-5) under the authority of the local church pastor.  The “Titus 2 Woman” models, trains and promotes godly Christian womanhood.  The aim of the “Women’s Ministries Emphasis” is to achieve that objective.
