Abstract
It is a well established and familiar fact that patriarchal and biblical teachings have never been in favor of women preaching. The Scripture that has been relied upon to enforce these teachings in the church for hundreds of years is 1 Corinthians 14:34-35, which states, “Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are to be submissive, as the law also says. And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for women to speak in church.” Today, this belief continues to be a contentious issue for clergywomen. However, social and religious struggles for the right to the pulpit, has spawned a modicum of women pastors who have become role models for other clergywomen. Ancient biblical scripture that censures the voice of women also view them as less valuable than men. This old trend may now be moving in a direction that is favorable to women clergy who wish their voices heard during the most sacred period of the worship day, preaching God’s Holy Word.
The purpose of this project is to prepare clergywomen in my church, the One Offering Tabernacle of God (OTOG) and community to stand in the gap, by establishing a practice preaching forum to nurture and hone their teaching and preaching skills with the gospel message that brings hope to those who are bruised in the pews and the community
