Full Title
A Strategy for Equipping Southern Baptist Pastors' Wives to Give Biblical Counsel: An Associational Model
Abstract
Pastors’ wives are in strategic positions within the churches as the wife of a pastor. Developing tools and training to help equip wives to be healthier spiritually and emotionally can have potential long-lasting results for the wife herself and her husband, family, ministry, church, community, and world. Equipping pastors’ wives through training in biblical counseling will help pastors’ wives grow spiritually and develop the competence and tools to nurture others spiritually.
The purpose of this project was to develop a strategy and framework outline for equipping that can help a pastor’s wife grow in her faith and learn how to give biblical counsel to others, which, in turn, can help others grow in their faith. This growth can have a Kingdom impact, resulting in the multiplication of disciples and disciple-makers and development of spiritual maturity. The three goals of the project were to: (1) develop a strategy to equip Southern Baptist pastors’ wives to counsel biblically; (2) assess competence of wives as counselors before and after the training, as well as to assess the spiritual health of the pastors’ wives before and after completing the training; and (3) use the training in an associational training event or an international trip to train nationals and missionaries.
