Priscilla's Friends: A Resource for the Spouses of Pastors
The Candle of Peace, Hope and Unity This, a Candle of Peace, Hope and Unity, was lit on 11th September, 2001 and has not been extinguished since.

We in John Mark Ministries have been concerned for many years about the 'least-pastored' group in the church - pastors' spouses. These people, mostly women, are the focus of this website. Using the ministering team of the Biblical couple Aquila and Priscilla as a model, we at JMM hope to provide encouragement, hope, and many resources for this specific and unique group of people.

A special request to visitors to this site: Kimberly Sutton, the spouse of a minister, writes, "We have pastored, and now we are missionaries preparing to leave for the field. The Lord has impressed on me to collect true stories of how God turned a bad situation around for His glory. A book for ministers' wives. As you know, there are not many books specifically for the wives. I am currently compiling them to send to a publisher and need about 100 stories. Would you be interested in helping me? Please contact me:"

An idea: Why not contact all the pastors' spouses in your town/suburb, and invite them to consider meeting regularly for study, discussion/sharing and prayer? Once a month for two hours, say ten months in the year, might be an optimum time-frame. Feel free to print out the materials on this website, particularly the Articles for Study/Discussion. We hope eventually to provide 50 of these - enough for five years! God bless you all!
