Being the wife of a man devoted to ministry may be one of the hardest jobs in a church. Others sometimes expect ministers' wives to take on jobs others cannot, or will not do. They fill in as church office assistant, Sunday school teachers and help out in the nursery. They help plan events, sing in the choir, serve on welcoming committees and cook dinner at the church on Wednesday nights. All without pay and, usually, with a smile on her face.
To show appreciation for these exceptional women, Michelle Chitwood invites ministers' wives to an open house during the Kentucky Baptist Convention's annual meeting on Nov. 13, 2018.
Michelle Chitwood is the wife of KBC Executive Director Paul Chitwood.
For a few hours that morning, ministers' wives will be treated to a relaxing space all their own. There will be dainty refreshments, violin music and conversation with kindred spirits.
We hope you will take part in this special time of recognition for all you do to support our Kentucky Baptist pastors and their churches.
Ministers' wives may pick up admission buttons the morning of the event from the Convention Information table at the KBC Annual Meeting in Pikeville on Nov. 13, 2018.
