Job Description

I was just jotting down some fun ideas for a blog the other day and found myself writing a job description for a pastor’s wife.  Now, I can tell you that I have literally had some of these requirements mandated on me over the years in the ministry.  I even know a few women who have held down ALL the rolls listed below and still managws their own households.  I know; that is crazy!!

For fun, I want you to play along with me.  I have listed just a few “descriptions” of what I have been asked to do.  Now, I want you to post what some of the rolls you have had to fill.  You do not have to be a pastor’s wife to include a description. 

I do want all of us to remember that we are called to serve the Lord in our roles in ministry.  Sure, the stress can be high, demands overwhelming, and we become weary.  The pay is often minimal.  However, just remember, our Lord faced the same issues as we do and he still fulfilled his earthly purpose.
