Ministry Mates


Click Here To Register For 2018


Ministry Mates is a conference designed to equip, encourage and empower pastor’s wives for their unique and specific roles of ministry.  Ministry Mates is an extended family of pastors’ wives helping each other maximize their lives, influence and impact through gatherings, trainings and resources.  The conference is especially designed for spouses of senior pastors, associate pastors, preachers and ministry staff.

Ministry Mates was founded by Dr. Tara Jenkins of Fellowship Chicago in Chicago, IL after years of interviewing and surveying pastors’ wives from across the country for her doctoral dissertation, “The Identification of Essential Components for Equipping Pastors’ Wives for Ministry.”  This comprehensive research showed an undeniable gap and need for community for women who lead alongside their Husband/Pastor.  Dr. Tara Jenkins and Stephanie Carter of Concord Church in Dallas, TX are partnering together to provide an exciting and inspirational day and a half pastors’ wives conference.
