Question: My question is: as a married women, I am placed under the authority of my husband correct? If you are a single parent (women) how should you be placed under the authority of your pastor? And to what extent? Thank you!

Answer: Some single women are under the headship of their fathers. If the father is not available, then they can submit to a pastor or other trusted leader for headship. Please see our article titled 'The Limits of Pastoral Authority' on Shelf 4 of the Apostolic Free Library on this website.
