Ministers: Love Your Spouse to Health
Free Webinar
Being married to a person in the profession of ministry is complicated. The expectations of clergy by congregations, community members, and the institution of the church, both locally and denominationally are high. The family is impacted by financial strain, lack of privacy, the clergy person being available 24 hours daily, and the clergy person’s service to others. The work of clergy impacts the whole family, for better or worse. During our time together, we will explore dimensions of well-being, but will also consider issues such as isolation, resentment, expectations (of self and others), and boundary-setting. This webinar is designed for spouses of clergy, but it is certainly open to clergy members, too.
