CFTROU 0064: Training & Caring for Staff Wives

Today we are continuing on conversation on training and caring for our staff wives. We are joined by three of our pastor’s wives, Kristin Scroggins, Kirra Kelly, and Joanna Christmas. We do believe that men and women are different, and there is great value in the roles that we all play in ministry. Join us as we dive into the goals we have to encourage and empower our staff wives, the importance of community when stepping into ministry, and the power of learning from others along the journey.

Key Points:

  • Our purpose for training and caring for our staff wives.
  • How the ministry gives our pastor wives the fuel to go out and support others.
  • The amazing sisterhood that develops with this group of staff wives.
  • What actually happens at these staff wives gatherings.
  • How to keep the focus on encouraging our staff wives.
  • First steps for getting started in caring for staff wives.
  • Role of the pastor for encouraging women to connect with other women.
  • How these women events support the rest of the team.
