Today my husband James officially became the assistant pastor at Cityview Church in Imperial Beach! I am super proud of him. Cityview Church is a church plant where we have been attending since the spring. James’ good friend Craig Kruse took up the job of breathing new life into a church that was about to be abandoned in Imperial Beach. He’s an excellent pastor and leader. There are about 75 people that come to worship, so it’s been very exciting to see what God is doing in that special place.
When I married James 13 years ago, we had just finished grad school at Regent University. He earned his MDiv and MBA. He had a heart to combine business and ministry. As a realtor and assistant pastor, he gets to do just that, so it’s thrilling to see the pieces come together as only God can orchestrate.
Then, this week I am attending a Defined by God conference sponsored by Logos Bible Software. The conference is completely geared for pastors wives and women’s ministry leaders. Talk about great timing! On Sunday, the church prayed over James as the assistant pastor and on Thursday, I get to attend a conference to learn more about being a pastor’s wife!
If you live near San Diego and you’re a pastor’s wife or ministry leader, you have got to consider coming to Defined by God. It’s going to be incredibly enriching and educational, spiritual and social. Imagine being in a room filled with women who immediately get your life!
And did I mention it’s FREE? And that pastors wives like Lauren Chandler and Lisa Chan will be speaking? I will be there on Thursday and Friday, so do let me know if you’re there because I’d love to see you.
Here’s to my first week as a pastor’s wife. I think I’m going to like it…(thanks Defined by God for the coming inspiration!)
