Our Mission

We exist to empower and support the conference Ministerial Spouses Association (Shepherdess) leadership and ministerial spouses through networking, resourcing, and training.

Emphasis on:

  • Spouses of employed pastors, departmental directors, and administrators
  • Spouses of theology teachers

To assist the spouses of ministers in:

  1. Spiritual growth
  2. Clarification of their role as a minister’s spouse
  3. Development of a team ministry with spouse, uniquely suited to her/his own interests and abilities
  4. Finding fellowship and a support system
  5. Developing stronger relationships with spouse and children
  6. Understanding and supporting their children to flourish in their environment

Values: Spirit-led . . .
