I Timothy 2:11-12
Romans 16:1, 7

A woman is not to be a teacher in the church. However, women are just as important to the life of a church as men are, and a woman can certainly help out with many other church activities (being “a servant of the church”), can be “of note among the apostles,” and can help “[expound] the way of God more perfectly” to people personally. None of these things contradicts the rule against a woman being a teacher in the church.
