In the New Testament, the diakonos was often a minister or emissary who taught or preached the gospel, Poujol said, things that Phoebe did. The word prostatis — used to describe Phoebe — was also used to describe Roman officials in leadership positions, and it is used in 1 Thes. Prisca Priscilla is mentioned in six New Testament texts.

There is some evidence of women serving as presbyters, with responsibilities for multiple churches, but that is disputed, Lozano said. We are losing bright women who are prepared for ministry but cannot find a place of service.
