Presenter: Scottie Stamper
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. Explore dimensions of well-being and consider issues such as isolation, resentment, expectations (of self and others), and boundary-setting.
This webinar, presented by board-certified Chaplain & ordained Minister Scottie Stamper, provides insight into life as the spouse of a minister and steps to take to ensure the well-being of minister’s spouses.
This resource is particularly helpful for persons interested in the minister’s family and in church administration with regard to personnel issues.
