Theme: Because I AM With You
As a ministry wife, serving alongside your husband, you walk through a multitude of life experiences. Some place you on a mountain top, bringing joy and overwhelming you with the blessing of serving together. Other times lead you into dark valleys, leaving you unsure of your resolve, faith and heart for ministry. No matter where you are in your journey, He assures you He is right beside you.

Counseling and Mentoring

As a complimentary service, appointments are available to meet with a professional counselor. Or if you’re just looking for an experienced woman to talk with, ministry wives will be acting as mentors and are available for appointments. Reservations can be made upon arrival.
