Pastors’ Wives Gathering

THEME VERSE: “Put on the Full Armor of God that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.” Ephesians 6:11

Dear Pastors Wife,

I pray this Christmas season allows you time to reflect on our greatest gift, Jesus. 

The new year is right around the corner and its time to start planning for 2023. After a few years of hiatus, I finally feel it is time for the Deep South Calvary Chapels to gather again for a Pastors Wife focused gathering. 

This will be different from the East/West Coast PW conferences and is not designed to replace either of them, but to add something new. During this gathering, we will have a time of teaching and worship, but it will be followed up with table talk where you will have a chance to talk through the teaching and process how to apply Gods Word to your life. This time will allow you to develop both in your relationship with God, and with other pastor wives as well. 

This year we are focusing on a passage from Ephesians chapter 6. Paul has spent 5 chapters exhorting the believer of our position in Christ and as a response to all God has done for us how we are to walk out our lives filled with the Spirit. Paul concludes the book with the final exhortation of how to be strong in the might of the Lord. We are given the description of the battle armor we can use to fight against the schemes of the devil. So much keeps changing in our world, I feel a reminder that the armor of God’s power is just what we need. This is the goal of this pastors’ wives gathering.

We have chosen for this three day get-away a resort located on Lake Lanier Island just north of Atlanta. This place is a wonderful atmosphere that allows you to really “come away”. Full registration and other information can be found below. 

Who is invited? We have called this a Pastor’s wife gathering but we know many churches have women in your church who are in a leadership position who serve alongside you. Who you invite is left up to your own discretion. 

If you have any questions please contact me personally. I am so excited about our time together. I encourage you to make plans asap as we feel this event will fill up fast.
