Before You Marry A Church Minister.

(1 ) GET TO KNOW HIS AREA OF
CALLING:
You need to ask questions from him
which aspect of the ministry he is called into, is it deliverance, faith, or healing etc?


Where is he suppose to function in the
body of Christ. You need to understand
his calling very well and get prepared for the task ahead.
(2 ) GOD IS HIS EMPLOYER NOT THE
CHURCH:
Do not expect that because he is in
charge of a large congregation then you
will not have financial challenges, many
have the notion that Pastors have free
access to Church money and always get
disappointed after marrying him. Note
that the Pastor is not the sole signatory
to Church account, the church is not an ATM.You had better prepared to spend

your personal money on God’s work. If
your reason for wanting to marry that
Pastor is money induced, please, cancel your wedding.
(3 ) PREPARE FOR A CHANGE
When you get married to a pastor, it will obstruct your plans, change your
directions and divert your focus.
Dear, there are values that you will have to
uphold, actions you will not be able to
take, sacrifices you will have to make,
your life directions will be significantly
affected. How flexible are you?
(4 ) PARTNER IN SERVICE
1 peter 4: 10, John 13: 13-17, Please,
know that you are his partner in service
to bless and meet people’s needs in the
Name of Jesus, you are to serve
alongside him, do not go with the
mindset that people are to serve you.You
must embrace his ministry, learn under
him and give him the total support.


(5 ) LADIES PASTOR
He will not only be the pastor of men but
of ladies too and some of them will be
extremely attractive. So, if you are a
jealous type, you had better marry
someone else and quit your relationship
with the Pastor.
(6 ) BIG HEART
It is not only a big hat that makes a
pastor’s wife but a big heart growing in
the Lord and towards the Lord Jesus.
You must have a large heart to
accommodate and manage different
classes of people with varying
characters.
(7 ) NO DEPENDENCY ON PEOPLE FOR
AFFIRMATION
Before you marry a pastor you must
erase your dependency on people for
affirmation and increase your
dependency on God for approval.
(8 ) RIGHT SPIRIT

A positive and caring spirit to serve
others will be helpful, you must do away
with self-centeredness and solo life
because a pastor is a man of the people.
(9 ) SLEEPING ALONE
The demand of the ministry might require
him to travel for ministerial assignments,
meetings, and retreats which may take
him away from you at night.
(10 ) OPPOSE EXTRAVAGANT
LIFESTYLE
If you must marry a Pastor, you must do
away with extravagance lifestyle and be
humane. You must not be materialistic
lest the church members detest you
(11 ) ACT OF HOSPITALITY
Before you marry a pastor, how
hospitable are you? A lot of People will
come for counseling in your house and
most of them may not be financially
strong but you must be hospitable
towards them even if they appreciate
what you are doing.
(12 ) PREPARE TO BE A
GLOBETROTTER
The work of a pastor involves a lot of
transfer from city to city and nation to
nation. At times, he may not spend up to
three months in a location before he gets
another letter of transfer. If you don’t
like moving from one place to another,
quit your relationship with the pastor now
(13 ) HE HAS A BOSS
He has a Boss –GOD. Do not expect him
to put you ahead of his Boss. Help him
to serve and obey God in all
things.Please, don’t push him against
God.

(14 ) MAN OF GOD
Before you marry a pastor, please always
remember that he is a man. So, do not
assume that been a man of God he does
not have sexual urge and temptations
like other men, he does. And
you must respect and treat him as such,
will you be able to?
