Its true that there are more verses supporting the drinking of wine than female elders. Also...Jesus drank alcohol but never appointed a female disciple.
So you disagree with the scriptural qualifications for an elder, yet use these same scriptural qualifications to claim that women cannot have church leadership roles.

Can you please let me know what "scriptural basis" you have to say that women cannot have church leadership roles?
