Abstract:Perhaps the most significant ambiguity, frustration, and vulnerability women face in their work in churches today is their refusal of the ordained ministry. While women have found personal spiritual inspiration in contributing to mission work in Nigeria and a good number of women are today enrolled at seminaries for theological education, women have often found themselves struggling with the issue of gender disparity imposed by church tradition and they have become casualties of church doctrinal struggles. In the religious climate of the Church of Christ in Nigeria, the impetus toward greater equality of women and men in ordained ministry in many respects is stalled. The concept of the division of labor between sexes and the notion of women's subordination to men affect virtually women in all spheres of endeavor. The findings of this project revealed that women are regarded as acquired property, second-class citizens, and experience lack of economic and leadership opportunity comparable to men. In this study, I examined the ecclesiological problems surrounding the ordination of women into pastoral ministry and claim that the issue of excluding women from the ordained ministry is a sociological contrivance that oppresses women and blocks their opportunity from articulating their spiritual gifting and ministry conviction in the Church of Christ in Nigeria.
