New Xulon Title Sets the Record Straight about Women in Ministry

Powell teaches all females about their freedom to minister, according to the Bible

MAITLAND, Fla., March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In her new release, Rebekah's Blessing: The Matriarchal Blessing/Giving Voice To God's Daughters ($23.99, paperback, 9781625094407; $7.99, e-book, 9781625094414) Teri Powell emphasizes the preconceived notions about a woman's role in ministry. She thoroughly examines the important function of women in the church body, in and beyond the walls of the church building. The book is designed for use in a Bible study spanning six weeks. Furthermore, the author points to instances in Scripture—some of the most important events in Jesus' ministry on earth—that He chose to use women.


"I believe at this time in the history of the world that God is calling a great company of women to share the Gospel abroad; gifted and Holy Spirit empowered women," states the author. "For too long women have been oppressed, abused, dishonored and marginalized simply because they are women. This was never God's plan for His daughters, those made in His image."

For over thirty years, Teri Powell has lived and worked with women from diverse cultural backgrounds, ethnicities and religions around the world. Her primary concern has been to help women—especially those who have been marginalized by the world, false religions and, at times, even the church—to discover who they are in Christ. Teri Powell has been a pioneer missionary in tribal Mexico with her husband for over two decades. Additionally, the author is a pastor's wife, a Bible study teacher and conference speaker. Teri Powell is currently the director of Women's Ministries for Scriptures in Use International, a ministry focused on training oral culture women to effectively present the Gospel through the arts of storytelling, drama, dance, poetry and song.
