This article considers the role of women in the church and in particular the church in Philippi. Women played prominent roles in the development of this congregation that the apostle Paul commended for their partnership in the gospel (Philippians 1:5). The author seeks to explore the question of the nature of women’s “partnership in the gospel," by probing the narrative of Acts 16:12-40.
