Is the Pastor’s wife to be the “co-pastor,” the church’s “First Lady,” or just another member?
What role should the wife of a Senior Pastor have in the church? Steven Furtick, Greg Laurie and James MacDonald offer their takes here:

James MacDonald’s closing remark in this clip is particularly insightful:
We’re to love our wives. . . . the way we treat our wives in public is a signal not only to our own wives but to our congregation of what that’s supposed to look like . . . and I just don’t think there should be any further expectation beyond that…
This brings up an important question, not just for pastors, but for all Christian men:
How are we treating our wives in public? Do we treat them better in publicly than privately? Do we treat them better privately than publicly? Are we striving to be consistent in how we show honor to our wives wherever we are?
