February 01, 2024 a Podcast from the OPC Committee on Diaconal Ministries Season 3 Episode 5
The Reformed Deacon
Serving by Supporting: The Role of Deacons' Wives
Show Notes

In this episode, The Reformed Deacon producer and long-time OPC deacon's wife, Trish Duggan, hosts two other seasoned OPC deacons' wives, Rachel Engeltjes and Michele Martzke from Bethel OPC in Wheaton, IL. I Timothy 3 gives a clear directive to deacons' wives, so we thought we'd ask Rachel and Michelle for their thoughts on family life, living in a fishbowl, and how they've been able to support their husbands in this important, and sometimes demanding role.
