A Pastor's Wife is not a Free Unpaid Staff Member

As I enter year 12 of being in pastoral ministry, I am noticing a sad reality. Many who began when I did are no longer along for the ride. It is sad and it is sobering. This series is aimed at rethinking how we view the pastoral ministry, calling and vocation.
