  1. Freedom in ministry life

    We don't need to fulfill any church member’s expectations (real or imagined) of what a pastor’s wife, ministry spouse, pastor, teacher, or other church worker should be. We only need to focus on God, the One who calls us free in the grace of Christ.
  2. My burden for someone else’s pain

    The church work family bears burdens and sufferings in a unique way. We have our own sufferings. Christ carries our load with and for us.
  3. The church worker and curious living

    Curiosity might kill the cat, but it keeps church workers healthy!
  4. The weight of debt

    Debt can weigh down workers and ministries. God gives us a foundation of hope.
  5. Tired of waving goodbye – one of the greatest joys and struggles of church work life

    Most church workers have family and friends scattered through the country. This reality contains many blessings, but honest struggle as well.
