Interview with Bec Walz
Bec is married to Jesse Walz, a fourth year ministry candidate. She has three beautiful children, and is the leader of the College Ministry Wives group.
What do you enjoy most about the PTC community?
I love that we can be united in Christ, and be an encouragement to one another to persevere in faith and serve God.
Tell us about your job.
My full-time role is to be a mother of my three children Kai, Ellie and Hannah, and be the helper to my husband Jesse. I believe the role of helper to my husband means being a fellow worker alongside him in the ministry. As part of this, I am a leader of the College Ministry Wives association here at the PTC.
How has being the wife of a candidate challenged or strengthened your faith?
No matter what stage of life, there are challenges. In this phase in particular, enabling my husband to have uninterrupted study time is certainly a challenge, especially as much of his work is at home. Finances and time management are challenging areas, so I need to trust that God will provide for us.
What do you look forward to most in your future role as wife of a full-time minister?
I was actually praying for God to allow me to be a minister’s wife, two years before I met Jesse! I am grateful that God put the desire in my heart so early on, so the role wasn’t thrust upon me unexpectedly. I think it's wonderful that minister’s wives can love and encourage people full-time, so I really look forward to doing this for a congregation.
How can we pray for you?
Please pray for patience and endurance as we spend our final year at the college, and that we will be well prepared for full-time ministry. Pray that we continue to fight sin in our lives, especially so that we will never be a stumbling block to others coming to know Jesus.
