The Pastor and His Wife: Fortifying Marriage Against the Demands of Ministry
This thesis aims to contribute to practical theology. Marriage and the public ministry are two gifts of God that are uniquely intertwined as a pastor serves his church and his family. God intends both of these to be blessings to those he delights to give them. Every good and perfect gift still is from above. The goal is to look at this unique balancing act: offering reminders about how God has created man and woman psychologically different, identifying common stressors that have affected couples in the ministry, and rejoicing in the blessings God gives in a marriage affected by ministry. His name be honored and glorified!
