Yeah Jimma’ - let’s change 2000 years of precedent because you say so. How many of the 12 apostles were women? I am sure you will be telling us next how many were gay?
It is not 2000 years of tradition but the Word as inspired by the Holy Spirit that requires Pastors, Deacons, and Teachers to be at the miminum:
A MAN of one wife not divorced
Not given to strong drink
“This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.” (1 Timothy 3:1).
