Being a pastor’s wife comes with its own unique set of challenges:
- You’re expected to be a perfect wife and parent (even though you’re only human).
- You’re expected to model hospitality (even when you don’t feel hospitable).
- You do a lot of behind-the-scenes work (that goes unnoticed).
- Your husband’s job often keeps him away from home (with office hours, meetings, visits, and emergencies).
Sometimes getting away to relax, get refreshed, and reconnect with Jesus makes all the difference. Join like-minded pastors’ wives in San Diego for a weekend of faith and fun!
If your husband works in ministry, the Defined by God conference is the perfect opportunity for you to recharge your battery and connect with others who understand the challenges you face.
For the November 1–3 conference, Logos has brought together top speakers from around the world to discuss topics like refining your romance, battling isolation, praying for your husband and the church, balancing your family and ministry, and so much more.
Hear from speakers like:
Amy Groeschel is the wife of Pastor Craig Groeschel of Oklahoma’s lifechurch.tv. She and Craig have six wonderful children, and they are thoroughly enjoying their mission “to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ.” Amy advocates social progress, including the eradication of human trafficking and poverty. She is the coauthor and teacher of a four-part discipleship Bible study entitled SOAR.
Jani Ortlund, executive vice president of Renewal Ministries, loves connecting women with the Word of God. Her chief passion in life is serving Jesus Christ through writing, speaking, and discipling. Jani and her husband, Ray—pastor of Immanuel Church—have four married children and seven grandchildren, and they minister in Nashville, Tennessee.
Lisa has been married to Francis Chan for 18 wonderful years. He was the founding pastor of Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley, CA, where he served for 16 years before God called their family to new adventures in India, Thailand, China, and—currently—inner-city San Francisco. Francis and Lisa enjoy serving alongside their five kids and hope to expand their family through adoption very soon.
Lauren Chandler is a wife and a mother of three. She is passionate about making much of Christ through writing and singing music, leading worship, blogging, and speaking. Lauren and her husband, Matt, have overcome tremendous challenges, beginning with the November 2009 discovery of a malignant tumor in Matt’s brain. The Lord has been infinitely merciful, providing peace and comfort in uncertainty as well as joy in times of victory and healing.
