Gender equality is a major topic of our times.  It isn’t a new issue.  Women have always accomplished great things, as have men.  There are many aspects of first century life that we have accepted as cultural and not spiritual, such as braiding hair, owning slaves, and eating pork.  When it comes to women in leadership, however, we often overlook that the Bible reflects the role of women at that time.  We pick and choose what we like from 1 Timothy 2, and fail to notice Joel 2:28 and Acts 2:17 which say “it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,” (boldface added).  Neither do we see God excluding women in Ephesians 4:11, Jeremiah 3:15, or Galatians 3:28.

Positions on the Governance Board of the Revival Center, (our deacons and bishops), are only open to men. (1 Timothy 3) Pastor Sandi operates in obedience to her husband, Martin, who recognizes her calling to be a pastor as a mandate and a gift given by God according to Ephesians Chapter 4.  While our Statement of Faith grants “The absolute sovereignty of the local pastor as overseer of the flock,” (as referenced in 1 Peter 5:2) Pastor Sandi willingly submits to the Governance Board and her husband. 

If you have any concerns regarding a woman as Pastor of the Revival Center, we respectfully ask that you seek out a member of the Governance Board, Martin Querin, or Pastor Sandi Querin to discuss them.  We do not wish for you to be burdened by thoughts that there is anything unbiblical happening.  We look forward to discussing the above referenced scriptures with you, as well as any other passages you feel are relevant to the topic.  There are articles in the Resource section which may help you as well.

    The Preaching, Worship, Counselling. Staff and Leadership teams at The Revival Center have been tried and found true.  They have been attending The RC for an average of 15 years and are not requested to be on a team until they have gone through extensive counselling and training.  To be considered to fulfill any position of leadership, a person must complete the required counselling and training, but also must have been attending regularly for a minimum of five years.

    The Preaching Staff has not only gone through these requirements, but have been attending meetings for over 20 years and have had extensive Revival Preaching training along with altar protocol.  They have preached through their pain and counselled through their own chaos.  They have truly come out the other side as the Word of God says, "Into the land of the living" (Psalm 27)  They are encouraged to "stir up their gifts" and operate in them, accountable to the the Governance Board, Rev. Sandi, along with the entire congregation.  

   Ours is a happy group; content in their God and joyful to be among one another.
