mary and martha invited Jesus in their home... a ministry of friendship and service.
mary magdalene, wiped off the feet of Christ with an oil using her hair.. a ministry of lovng and serving.
samaritn woman in the well... a ministry of serving God by giving Him a drink.
and many more women who do ministries for the glory of God. nothing in the Bible that prohibits women in the ministry. a wife is ministering to her husband, children and family. a career woman ministers at her workplace. God bless women in the ministry.

Some people believe that deacons' "wives" in [1 Timothy 3:11] actually refers to deaconesses. Also, Phoebe was a deaconess in the church of Cenchrea [Romans 16:1-2] Priscilla was one of Paul's helpers [Romans 16:3]. And if you want to go way back, Deborah was a prophetess and judge over Israel in the Old Testament [Judges 4:4-14]. The Bible also lists many other prophetesses: Miriam [Exodus 15:20,21], Huldah [2 Kings 22:12-20], Isaiah's wife [Isaiah 8:1-3], Anna [Luke 2:36], etc.
God Bless!
