Pastors’ wives (PW) and women in ministry are incredible sources of wisdom and creativity as they use their gifts in leadership and service. I highly value their insight, faithfulness, and diligent labor. That’s why I’m hosting Wednesdays Are for Women. Each week, we’ll hear from a different PW or ministry leader and gain her perspective on God’s activity on her ministry team, her local church, or the issues facing church leaders today.
Next week is our annual conference, Velocity, and Tricia Lovejoy is hosting a track designed especially for Pastors’ wives. Today she gives us a sneak peek.
Next Monday and Tuesday will be two of my favorite days of 2012. I’m praying that many other ladies will be able to say the same. That’s because we’re hosting something unique. Something crafted for a specific group of women. Something not offered often, if ever, at most conferences.
A Pastors’ Wives Track. That’s right. A series of breakout sessions to encourage, edify, and refresh the women leaders of our churches.
Take a quick peek at what’s in store:
A PW Mixer. Make some connections with other women who understand the journey of ministry…connections that could benefit you long after you leave Velocity. Need creative ministry ideas? Looking for ways to invest into your team? Need help setting ministry boundaries for your family? Join us as we mix and mingle…and make each other better!
Confessions Of A Pastor’s Wife. Admit it. We’ve all struggled in some way as wives of pastors. Life in a fishbowl can make the best of us flounder from time to time. Lori Wilhite, Brandi Wilson, Tricia Lovejoy, Sarah Keller, and Trisha Davis pull back the curtain on their lives and help us all find ways to thrive!
The Best Practices Of A Church Planter’s Wife Listen as Tricia Lovejoy shares 6 practices she uses to effectively manage ministry, marriage, and family. She’ll transparently share the lessons she’s learned in church planting.
Leading and Actually Loving It. Does ministry life sometimes leave you drained rather than fulfilled? Join Lori Wilhite and Brandi Wilson as they help us navigate the expectations and roller coaster emotions of church life and find real, life-giving community.
There you have it. Velocity will give us two days of dynamic speakers, passionate worship, practical workshops, PLUS breakout sessions to address situations and issues unique to Pastors’ wives. I’m pumped!
It’s not too late to register. Get here if at all possible. We’ll make connections, share ideas, and stretch our skills and faith. See you next week!
