pastors’ spouses

This section is especially for YOU…

*Updated weekly*  Please come back soon for the latest…

Welcome to this part of our online ministry of encouragement to those who are married to pastors, ministers, missionaries etc. This part of the ministry is geared to encourage you in the unique set of circumstances spouses often find themselves in, especially in our Scottish church culture. We want to keep it real, honest and God centred as we look to explore some of the common issues that we experience due to ministry. We hope to feature encouraging contributions from others who have gained wonderful insights over many years.

 

We want to encourage you that you are not alone and indeed, that you may be enlightened to discover that ‘behind the veil’ many of us are wrestling with very similar issues. We firmly believe…. “BUT God”….. He IS able … and He is with you in all the ups and downs, never leaving you or abandoning you. Always loving you and wanting you to feel that love.

 

We love you,we are for you, and our prayer is that you know the peace, joy, grace and strength of God as you journey alongside your spouse in serving God.

** The One who calls you is faithful, and He will do it **

1Thessalonians 5:24 - (NIV)
