Who We Are
Welcome to the Pastor’s Spouse Connection! If you are married to a pastor, this ministry is for you! PSC began in 2014 when a small group gathered to pray and brainstorm about ways we could serve pastors’ spouses. So many of you are busy, lonely, and in need of connection with other spouses who understand the unique opportunities and challenges in ministry. Out of this awareness, the word CONNECTION became a foundational part of what we are about at PSC. We believe thriving in life and ministry requires a strong CONNECTION with God and with others who are willing to walk alongside us to offer encouragement and support. At PSC, we want to both promote and create places for CONNECTION. We exist to inspire, connect, and support the men and women who are married to pastors through gatherings, ongoing connections, and resources for development and care. It is our desire for spouses to lead healthy lives, build strong marriages and families, and experience effective ministries where lives, churches, and communities are being transformed through the hope and holiness of Jesus Christ.
God has designed us to connect in community. Together we serve, learn, grow, and build one another up. Together we more fully reflect the image of our creator. This is a beautiful reality but one that can be challenging for pastor’s spouses. We often feel our lives are on display. We are not sure how open or vulnerable we can be in relationships. We worry about how our words or actions in public will impact the ministry of our spouse, the pastor. While navigating these issues may not always be easy, finding life-giving and trustworthy connection with others is so important if we are to become the people God desires us to be. So find ways to CONNECT! It might be with someone over coffee or a group of pastors’ spouses you reach out to in your area. We’d love to have you join us at PSC events and find us online. Our ministry is committed to promoting and developing opportunities for connection. “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another…” –Hebrews 10:24-25
