Care for Widows and
Pastors in Need

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after…”
James 1:27

Your gift serves those who have served us

In 2019, Mary Lu Strawbridge lost her husband, Ted, to a heart attack. His death came abruptly, and they’d expected to have years of ministry ahead of them.

As the wife of a PCA pastor, Mary Lu was eligible for denominational aid set aside for the servants of the church.

In this video, she shares the story of her marriage to Ted and Ministerial Relief’s help in the wake of Ted’s passing.

The Oft-Forgotten Role of the Pastor’s Wife

“It’s surprising that a person in the spotlight can be invisible. That’s how I felt as a pastor’s wife, under constant scrutiny, but unknown.  After being married to my husband and serving alongside him for almost 20 years, this past year felt like I had finally hit a stone wall. I could no longer cope with the stress and disappointments of ministry on my own.”
