Ministry wives podcast host offers tips she wishes she’d had

Christine Hoover said when she embarked on her ministry as a pastor’s wife that she “was so young and didn’t know what I was doing at all.”

“I definitely had examples, but I desired a lot more help — for people who had been there to say, ‘Here’s what I’ve learned along the way, the mistakes I’ve made,’ and offer some tips and tools,” she said. That’s what Hoover hopes to do with her new North American Mission Board podcast, “Ministry Wives.”

The inspiration for the podcast comes from Hoover’s experiences as she has served alongside her husband, Kyle, for the past 20-plus years in parachurch ministry, at a large multi-staff church, and in church planting. To listen to the podcast, visit
