Romans chapter 16 is a list of greetings Paul makes to the faithful believers in Rome. In his moving movement of longing to be with the women and men he knew, he 16 listed 29 individuals, 10 of them were women. This list mentions 6 specific congregational functions, positions of service and authority within the earliest meeting places. In these roles, Paul greets only 3 men while 7 women are named as active in congregational roles. These include the role of deaconess, patron, co – labourer, host, labourer and apostle. In this teaching, Aliyah digs deep in to the female leaders Paul greets, and discovered how powerfully they led, fought, mentored, preached, taught and worked for the kingdom.
