networking with other PWs

>> December 8, 2008


Back in April, Craig Groeschel, pastor of Lifechurch.tv in Oklahoma, opened his blog up for readers to ask his wife, Amy, questions. The question I posted was:

Do you network with other pastor’s wives in your area? If so, what activities/events have you found to be the most beneficial in terms of support, sharing, spiritual growth, etc.

Here's her answer: (check out the rest of the question/answer blogs here)

Delina, Yes! For the past several years I have co-hosted a pastors’ wives luncheon in our metro area. We gather together at least semi-annually to connect as friends and pray for one another. It has been a wonderful blessing to get to know and deeply care for these women and the churches they serve.

If you’d like to start something like this in your community, here are a few ideas:

  • Start with two or three pastors’ wives you know and ask them to invite their friends.
  • Ask your husband which pastors he knows whose wives might be interested.
  • Pray and ask God to show you ministers you’ve never met that you could invite.
  • I’ve found that most pastors’ wives can make it to a midweek lunch. Many love to bring something and contribute.
  • Chances are good you’ll be shocked at how many ministry wives crave these friendships.

I strongly recommend you start uniting ministries however you can in your community!

Have any of you have success networking with other PWs?

Other PWs are some of the best friends I have! Our assoc. pastor's wife is truly a God-send for me. She and I are getting to know the PWs at a sister church. We just moved to PA this year, so making friends has been a little slow. But I instantly feel connected to these ladies because of the PW bond we share.

that's awesome! I'm working on being more intentional about reaching out to PWs (and not just online!). It was so much easier when my husband was in Seminary...
