Support for the Spouse and Family of a Pastor

A pastor is called to be the shepherd and spiritual life source of an entire church community. That in itself is a tall order for any man or woman to accomplish. But what happens when the pastor heads home to their own family, whom they are also called to lead and minister too. And what about the unique journey it is to be the spouse or children of a pastor?


This section is designed to offer resources that will give voice to the oftentimes “unknown and unspoken” journey of being a spouse or child of a pastor. I hope you will find these resources as a way to rejoice and celebrate the many blessings, but also give notice to the real trials and struggles that you, your family may be facing in the midst of ministry.
