Seminary Wives

The purpose of Seminary Wives is to enrich each wife’s devotion to God, Enrich her marriage and family through study of the Word and profitable literature, enrich her personal development through small group discipleship, accountability, and support, and equip her for future ministry alongside her husband by providing materials, resources, and practical training in women’s ministry.


Meetings are held Wednesdays for approximately ten weeks each semester.

We devote typical meeting times to: Encouragement and motivation through worship and devotion – Psalm 19:14; Colossians 1:9-11; Colossians 3:16; instruction with regard to a particular skill – 1 Peter 4:10-11; Colossians 3:17; participation in a study of God’s Word or in discussion of a book relating to a topic of practical value for wives – 1 Peter 3:1-6; 2 Timothy 2:15; 1 Timothy 2:9-10, 3:11; and mutual support in a period of prayer for one another. Additional special activities are occasionally sponsored by the group – Colossians 4:2; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; Philippians 2:1-4.


All of our table leaders are eager to be involved in the discipleship of our students’ wives to encourage them as their husbands study in seminary. These women, devoted to the Lord and their families also enjoy many other ministries and interests.
