Ministry to Wives

grace place croppedGrace Place Wellness endeavors to support clergy and church workers in finding joy in ministry. We understand that a big piece of this is having healthy families and healthy marriages. We recognize that just as every ministry situation is unique, so is every ministry spouse. But there is a common bond found in the journey. There are seasons of joy and seasons of sorrow in ministry. Each bend is both exciting and challenging and can easily wear on emotions and relationships. Expectations abound.

The Deaconess for Ministry Wives position was created to offer an extra layer of spiritual care and support for spouses. Currently we are doing this through individual visits with Deaconess Heidi (whether in person, by phone, or online), online Bible studies just for pastor’s and church work wives, a devotional blog, and connecting with one another at district events and retreats. We are also working to meet with and encourage and uplift Seminary Wives in the same way.

Deaconess Heidi desires most of all to hear about each woman’s journey in all of its uniqueness. She would love to hear your story, to share your joys and challenges. Let us know if there is any way we can help make the journey that much more rich.
