Ministers’ Wives Fellowship
Heart to Heart Ministries is the ministers’ wives fellowship in the Congregational Holiness Church. It exists to provide support, fellowship, and training for the minister’s wife. Its goal is to help the wife of the minister find her own unique and God-given place by her husband’s side as the wife of a pastor or minister.

Our commission is found in Luke 4:18,19: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”
