CBF recognizes the sacrifices that wives make in order that their minister husbands are able to fulfill the calling God has for them in the church. Some of them are home makers but many of them have careers of their own and yet they are supportive of their husbands in carrying their share of the ministry load be it in the different areas of ministry, visitation, caring, counseling and the list goes on.
They serve as “tag along” ministers who have no job description and yet there are unspoken expectations that come with being “the wife”. Invariably, they are sometimes the ones who are the least appreciated and affirmed. But they are the most important and indispensable partner for a minister. CBF seeks to minister to this group of partners in ministry for our ministers and we have created a Supporting Ministry that seeks to reach out to Pastors/Ministers and to their wives.
The Supporting Ministry to Wives of Ministers is headed by Mrs. Sarah Chiu of Milpitas, CA. and Mrs. Kate Leong of Houston, TX. Their plan is to host periodic gatherings of wives of ministers regionally to provide mutual support and encouragement among them. They are in the process of raising funds to pay for such gatherings. For more informa on, please contact: Sarah Chiu (email@example.com) or Kate Leong (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Praise God for the gathering of 24 wives of ministers in the San Francisco Bay Area on December 16 2017. It was a great time of connecting, mutual encouragement and support over High Tea. The ladies enjoyed it immensely. Please click here to read report and view pictures.
