I had an interesting conversation the other night about the expectations of the Senior Pastor’s wife from the other staff members. I had thought about expectations from the congregation and from myself, but not really from other staff and staff wives. 


So let me ask, as a leader, what are your expectations of the Senior Pastor’s wife? What would you like for her to do with and/or for you? And if you are on staff at Central, it is ok, you can tell me. 🙂

    It looks as if I may have officially scared people off with this … you can post anonymously! Don’t be scared 🙂

    haha, well….I don’t really “expect” anything from our senior pastor’s wife. I do expect that she would be a follower of Christ. , oh yeah and she MUST play the organ….just kidding. I don’t think I really have a lot of pre-conceived notions about what a pastor’s wife should be.

    I dont really have any expectations of our seniors wife except maybe that she be friendly. I think the christ-folower thing should be a given. I dont think she should have to lead a bible study or anything like that or even attend a bible study if she doesnt want to b/c I wouldnt want that placed on me either. I think outsiders do, however, have plenty of expectations.

    The other staff wives and I were just asked this by our new senior pastor’s wife this weekend. (actually at that time she was the candidate for senior pastor’s wife). We assured her that we had no expectations of her… Just support her husband and let us be here for her as they transition and move. And we told her to ignore any expectations anyone else put on her.

    I expect Lori to be Lori. Be who God made you. That’s it. Simple.
    It’s awesome watching you share the vision with Jud and Central at making a huge difference in the valley! You are someone who people want to be around- your fun-real- and of course a great cheerleader for all of us as staff wives.

    I don’t think we have the right to expect anything from you. You have many roles in life right now (wife, mom, homework coach, carpool driver, dog groomer, etc.) and that is what you are responsible for, not us.
