Learn about Ministry Mates...

Over 8 years ago, Ministry Mates was created to equip, encourage and empower pastors' 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.

 

Ministry Mates was founded by Dr. Tara Jenkins 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 has been married for 20 years to Pastor Charles Jenkins, Lead Pastor of FellowshipChicago.com.
