About SemWives


The Seminary Wives' Discipleship program is an association of the wives of students, along with the TMS/TMC faculty wives and the Grace Community Church pastors' or elders' wives who lead the small group sessions. The purpose of the organization is to:

  • Enrich each wife's devotion to God - Romans 12:1-2; Romans 6:17-18; 1 Peter 1:15-16; Proverbs 3:5-6

  • Enrich her marriage and family through study of the Word and profitable literature - Titus 2:3-5; 1 Peter 3:1-6

  • Enrich her personal development through small group discipleship, accountability, and support - Colossians 3:16; Romans 14:19; 1 Corinthians 16:15-16; 2 Peter 3:18

  • Equip her for future ministry alongside her husband by providing materials, resources, and practical training in women's ministry - Ephesians 4:1-3; Titus 2:4-5

Our Meetings

Meetings are held Wednesdays for approximately ten weeks each semester. We devote typical meeting times to:

  • Encouragement and motivation through worship and devotion - Psalm 19:14; Colossians 1:9-11; Colossians 3:16

  • Instruction with regard to a particular skill - 1 Peter 4:10-11; Colossians 3:17

  • Participation in a study of God's Word or in discussion of a book relating to a topic of practical value for wives - 1 Peter 3:1-6; 2 Timothy 2:15; 1 Timothy 2:9-10, 3:11

  • Mutual support in a period of prayer for one another; additional special activities are occasionally sponsored by the group - Colossians 4:2; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; Philippians 2:1-4
