For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans 15:4
Mission & PurposeThe goal of PWR is to encourage women married to pastors to find their foundation, strength, and encouragement in God's Word, and to support their sisters in Christ. The ministry of Pastors' Wives' Renewal will:
- Provide opportunities for wives to come together around God's Word and share concerns, struggles, and joys in a positive and supportive environment.
- Provide ongoing encouragement through Bible studies, devotions, and connections to other wives who can support one another through prayers, love, and friendship.
- Encourage ladies in their supportive roles to their husbands at church, at home, and in their personal ministries among people they meet.
Encouraging support and spiritual refreshment amongst wives of pastors of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.A Christian woman has been blessed with unique talents, strengths, joys and struggles. She is called to love her Father in heaven and share His grace and mercy with those she meets. She is called to set an example in her life and faith. When her husband is a pastor, being a shepherd is his calling; but her faith, love, and life have a direct influence on his ability to minister and care for those in his flock. As Satan used Eve to bring Adam's fall (and her own); so Satan can bring his strongest attacks against a pastor's wife and family. The best defense is a strong commitment to God's Word and to be surrounded by a family of believers supported by the Holy Spirit.
