Ministry Wives

As a ministry wife, your spouse has a vocation without a job description… and let’s be honest — sometimes it seems like ministry might be easier if she did have one. This podcast is for her! Hosted by Christine Hoover, your wife will listen in on authentic conversations from women in various ministry contexts about shared joys and challenges – and no topic is off-limits.

Calling Out the Called
Videos and mentoring guides provide practical tools to help pastors and leaders disciple and walk alongside future ministry leaders as they examine their calling to ministry and prepare for ministry leadership.
Love Worth Finding
Love Worth Finding is the legacy ministry of Pastor Adrian Rogers. A pastor, teacher and author, Adrian Rogers introduced people all over the world to the love of Jesus Christ and has impacted untold numbers of lives by presenting profound biblical truth with such simplicity that “a 5 year-old can understand it, and yet, it still speaks to the heart of the 50 year-old.” Love Worth Finding was started in 1987 as the broadcast ministry of Adrian Rogers and remains the exclusive provider of his comprehensive teachings today.
Reconstructing Faith Podcast
Scathed by scandal and riddled with controversy, the American church today faces a credibility crisis. What is the way forward for renewal in our generation? Trevin Wax offers perspective from church history and the church around the world to help listeners recommit both to removing the rot from the church and fortifying the foundations of unchanging truth. It's time to rebuild.
