The subject of women’s roles in the church is near and dear to Mary Beth McGreevy’s heart. McGreevy grew up in a family that didn’t study the Bible and as a child she attended church where women were routinely ordained to the pastorate.

She and her husband joined the PCA in 1997, where leaders embraced her gifts and talents. Even so, she says, we too often we focus on what women can’t do. When we ask about what women can do, the answer is “Almost everything!”
