An opportunity to support ministry wives is an opportunity to support thriving ministry! I am thankful that I have always had access to Parakaleo on this church planting journey. I did not know the challenges that I would face or how lonely I would feel, but I am so grateful that I never had to walk alone. With the help of this ministry, my perspective has changed, my ability to articulate my hope has increased, and my reliance upon my Savior has deepened. While I still struggle with my own sin and face many challenges, I have never been without hope. I am thankful that we can offer this same support to other ministry wives!
I may be further down the church planting road, but I still need this ministry. I am also part of the training team and have had the opportunity to encourage ministry wives both online and in person. I am currently leading a local support group for ministry wives and participate in more opportunities for my own spiritual growth.
So what is “Parakaleo”? We train & support women in church planting & ministry. Ministry is hard and many women do not have access to training and support. Often only the husband has had training opportunities or access to other peers for support. We know what it’s like to struggle in your role because you feel unprepared to face the challenges in ministry. We believe that both partners in the pastoral couple play a vital role when starting a new church. Parakaleo has been equipping women in church planting and ministry for over 15 years.
Help women get access to training and support by donating to Parakaleo.
