On this episode of the Art of Pastoring, Ronnie Martin and Jared Wilson talk about the joys and challenges cultivating a flourishing marriage while in pastoral ministry. They talk about boundaries, seeking wisdom, and the weight of expectations on ministry spouses. Tune in for a word of encouragement and hope.
