November 12, 2011 gathering!









Greeting South Florida Ministry Wives!

You are invited to join us for our next gathering!

You don’t want to miss this one…come and enjoy a few hours with other ministry wives who share the same unique calling as you and get refreshed before the holiday seasons begin!

We are excited to be partnering with Potential Church, who has graciously offered to host our next gathering. They are already making preparations to serve us well…you don’t want to miss it!

WHEN: Saturday, November 12th

TIME: 9:45am – 12:15pm
(with chair massages available after the gathering! Woo!!!)

WHERE: Potential Church, 12401 Stirling Road, Cooper City, FL

SPEAKER: Steph Gramling, Senior Pastors’ Wife, mom of 3
(stay tuned next week for Steph’s bio.)

ADDED BLESSING: Potential Church will be blessing us with complimentary chair massages after our gathering! I may just have to run over to be the first in line, unless you beat me to it! So, plan on staying a few minutes after to enjoy a stress-relieving massage! Can I get an amen!?!? 🙂

WHY SHOULD YOU COME? In April 2007, we started our first Embrace Network gathering with 12 ministry wives. Over the last 4 years, we are now serving almost 50 ministry wives from around the South Florida. Ministry is a unique calling that comes with unique challenges and sacrifices. Embrace was created for you to connect with other women like you, encourage one another, cheer one another on (and your churches), and to be a place where you can be filled up, refueled, and recharged. I truly believe that when you encourage the ministry wife, you in turn are encouraging her children, her spouse, and her church. We want to bless you, pray for you, and pour into you. You matter. You are not alone. You are valuable in the Kingdom of God here at work in South Florida.

CAN I COME ALONE? Yes! Whether you come alone or with other ministry wives from your church, we want you there! Don’t be intimidated. Don’t let anything stop you from coming…you won’t regret it! I promise! You will be greeted with a warm welcome and we will help make you feel right at at home 🙂

RSVP: Mark your calendars now, ask your husbands to clear their schedules or book your babysitter early…you don’t want to miss this! Please RSVP to me ( or by clicking YES, NO, MAYBE on the Facebook event page by November 1st. Your RSVP will ensure we have enough seating.

** Unfortunately, childcare is not available. However, nursing infants are welcome. 🙂

SPREAD THE WORD: Currently, we are serving almost 50 ministry wives at each of our 2 gatherings per year (Spring and Fall). But, there are TONS of other ministry wives out there who may not know about this wonderful resource and support system…so let’s all do our part in spreading the word! Here are a few ways you can do that:

  • ~ Forward this information on to other ministry wives you know
  • ~ Make personal phone calls or send text messages
  • ~ Share the FB event on your personal FB page
  • ~ Tweet about the event via Twitter

I hope to see you on November 12th…until then, please know we are praying ahead of time for you and cheering you on as you serve your families and churches for the glory of God!
