Arkansas Ministers and Wives Day

August 19, 2014

Our Lord knew what he was doing when he sent out the disciples “two by two” (Luke 10:1). Ministry can be a demanding, draining, and even lonely calling, and there are times when we can all use the advice, support, and friendship of a colleague.

 That’s why we host the annual Arkansas Ministers and Wives Day;  it gives us the opportunity to honor those of you who are on the front lines of the kingdom of God, and it allows you to associate with a state-wide gathering of your colleagues.

 And, that’s why the theme of this year’s program will be “Partnership.”


Capable speakers will explore vital relationships that can help us experience healthy and effective ministries.
