Ministry Spouses schedule events


Spouses of clergy often feel isolated and under a microscope as a part of ministry families. The Ministry Spouses of the WV UM Annual Conference seek to provide friendship, fellowship, and fun as we share life in Christ. We host a luncheon at Annual Conference, a weekend retreat in September, and encourage small group meetings in each district to help ministry spouses cope with the unique joys and challenges we encounter.

Started in 1955 as the WV Annual Conference Ministers’ Wives, our organization has changed over the years to include husbands of ministers as well as wives. We may have changed names, but our purpose remains the same—to provide a caring network for spouses of those in ministry.
