It is clear (to me) that scripture requires the ordination of men to preach the word. Jesus gave Peter ordination, and the Apostles to over see the preaching of the word. From there The Apostles took charge of ordaining proper men for the preaching of the word. Paul sent out Timothy etc. So the question is; Should a missionary be ordained before entering the mission field. Mission to the World, does not require it (MTW is PCA mission organization) NAMB (North American Mission Board) does not require it So two major missionary organizations do not require it. However if preaching of the word is something that a man should be ordained to do, why is a missionary not ordained? Question B. If the conclusion is a missionary by scripture should be ordained; than should woman be missionary's. I do not have a problem with women missionary's but I do feel certain roles needs to be done by man. Looking forward to the conversation.
