Recognizing the invaluable input of seasoned ministry wives, the Flowers for the Pastor’s Wife ministry has assembled the Flowers Board of Reference, consisting of women who have a passion for encouraging pastors’ wives, especially those serving in isolated contexts of rural and small-town areas. These women are current or former pastors’ wives, authors, and/or other ministry leaders.
Ministry Affiliation: Crosspoint Bible Church, Omaha, NE and RHMA Staff
Mel is serving alongside her husband who is currently Interim Pastor at Crosspoint Bible Church since October 2018. In the past, they planted 2 churches and also served with the EFCA in the Dakotas. Mike was a professor of Pastoral Studies at Moody Bible Institute for 11 years. Mel has a BA in Elementary Education from the University of North Dakota. She enjoys encouraging pastors’ wives and being involved in women’s ministry and Bible studies. She also enjoys time with her 7 grandchildren!
Ministry Affiliation: Village Missions
My husband, Sam, and I have served with Village Missions for almost 20 years now. We served in a tiny town in NE for 16 years and now have been in Deer Trail, CO, for a little over three years. I am currently heavily involved as a volunteer at the Eastern Plains Women’s Resource Center (crisis pregnancy and other life skills, mentoring, etc). I’m in my 16th or 17th year as an Awana Cubbies leader/teacher and am the worship/music planner for our congregation. I love to teach/lead women’s Bible Study groups and occasionally speak for Ladies retreats, special events, etc!
Ministry Affiliation: RHMA
I am married to Al Seadore, have four grown children, four granddaughters, and one grandson.
At present we are serving in a church in Marquette, KS.
I have always loved teaching small groups of women and God is allowing me to do that. A few years ago I was asked to lead worship at a state park ministry. I asked God to make me a woman of worship in my whole life, which He continues to do. Now I enjoy leading the worship at Marquette and at occasional outreaches. Perhaps my biggest joy is interceding for others.
Ministry Affiliation: Walk Thru the Bible
Wife, mom, grandmother (in March!), teacher, speaker, former pastor’s wife. We pastored in IL for 7 years before joining the staff of Walk Thru the Bible in 1992. I am a teacher and speaker and a writer wannabe…in the making!
