(Photos) Meet 4 Female Pastors Who Were Trained By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

The leadership of the Church of Christ isn't akin to only male ministers but females also. There are ministers like Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, who have adopted this philosophy in the body of Christ by raising female preachers in this generation. This ideology is opposed to the Church tradition of having only male pastors as the only preachers in a Church setting. This listicle takes a dig at some female leaders who were trained by Pastor Chris.

There have been concerns raised over gender discrimination by feminists as concern Church leadership. Many have argued that women shouldn't be allowed to preach - because Jesus never chose a female Apostle.

However, the Church leadership from the Old Testament down to the New Testament, cited women like Deborah, Anna the prophetess, and many more who worked for God and even led the people of God.

In Jesus' ministry, women played different roles. The trend continued down to the early Church most especially in Paul's ministry. The promise of the Holy Spirit was given to everyone including women. "I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy."(Joel 2:28).

This model of Church leadership is what popular televangelist, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has adopted in his global ministry - LoveWorld inc.

Several female preachers occupy several key positions in his church - women who he raised in ministry and have worked with him for over two decades.
