Together in Ministry @ Phoenix Seminary

Phoenix Seminary Supports the Family

Many students at Phoenix Seminary have a calling from the Lord to work in vocational ministry which means that not only the student, but the family as well, will be serving. Because Phoenix Seminary takes the family unit seriously, Together in Ministry (TIM) was started to support the wives of male degree students. One of the ways TIM supports wives is the offering of monthly small groups where wives can meet in a safe, supportive environment, share their lives, pray for each other and encourage each other in practical ways as needs arise. These new friends often turn into lifelong friendships. The vision of TIM is “to connect, support and prepare ministry wives throughout the Phoenix Seminary community for a lifetime of service.” This includes wives of new students and alumni as well.

Michelle Lindsay, a new TIM wife and student, is an active member of the current TIM group. She states, “Together in Ministry has provided such a safe place for me to share life with women who understand the challenges and celebrations associated with seminary. This community provides just the support and love that I need during this season of life. I have no doubt that the friendships made here will last a lifetime.” Another new TIM wife had this to say, “It warms my heart that Phoenix Seminary has such a vision as TIM. A program that celebrates the unity of marriage and its importance is guaranteed to have a powerful impact in the Kingdom. I am excited to be a part of TIM.” For more information on how to get connected with TIM, contact Tiina Mitchell at 602-429-4918 or tmitchell@ps.edu.
