We have an event coming up called Between Us, and we keep getting asked the question, “What’s that?” and “Who’s that for?” Well, let me clarify… it’s a conference just for ministers’ wives! If your husband serves in ministry, this conference is for you. I feel a little crazy calling it a conference because it’s so much more than that, but we’ll just call it a conference for now. If you’re not a ministers’ wife, I’m guessing that you know one (or two, or thirty-five, depending on the size of your church), and we want you to keep reading because she needs to know about it (see below for the paragraph aptly titled, “What if I’m not a ministers’ wife??”) and we’re counting on you to tell her! If you’re not a ministers’ wife, you can join her for Living Proof Live with Beth Moore once Between Us is over and make it a girls’ weekend! Beth Moore is even going to make a special appearance at Between Us, but ssshhh… that’s a secret just between us. (Did you catch that joke? I hope so…)
Are you a minister’s wife?
Whether it’s feeling like you live in a glass house, giving up more of your time than you were prepared to give, or just dealing with typical marriage issues, ministry life can just be hard. Often, you don’t get to settle down in one city for the rest of your life. As the Lord leads, your family moves (sometimes across the country or world), and it’s not easy. Starting over, establishing a home base, moving kids, schools, churches, doctors, etc. is challenging, and you do so much of the work that goes unseen. It can feel like no one understands the role you are in. That’s why we’re inviting you to be a part of Between Us: Called, Equipped, & Encouraged. It’s a conference just for you as a ministers’ wife. Between Us is an opportunity for you to be prayed for, heard, and ministered to.
What if I’m not a minister’s wife??
We need you to tell your ministers’ wife about this event! Ministry is hard on families, especially those who are in the trenches on a daily basis. As a way of ministering to the ministers’ wives in your church, consider finding a way to bless the ministers’ wives at your church by sending them to Between Us: Called, Equipped, & Encouraged. This is a conference specifically for them, but it’s so much more than that. We want to pour into them because they’re always pouring into others. Can your church body, women’s ministry, or just a group of women come together to make it happen for her? This is a fantastic opportunity for you to rally around the women who invest so much in the life of your church body.
All of the breakout leaders and worship leaders are ministers’ wives, so they’re walking the same road you are. Beth Moore will be making a guest appearance, and you won’t want to miss out. The cost is $79 until July 26 and then goes up to $89 until the event. Join us in Tulsa, Oklahoma, September 26-27, 2013 as we gather ministers’ wives from across the country. We also invite you to stay for Living Proof Live with Beth Moore, which will be held September 27-28.
We hope to see you (or a ministers’ wife you know) at Between Us!
