The Perry Family

What does a chaplain’s wife do anyway?

The Perry Family

On February 1, our chaplains’ wives will enjoy a day at The Spa at Pinehurst. Volunteers from the Empty Nester life class at Capital Community Church in Raleigh have been preparing gift bags to make it an extra special day.

One of these amazing ladies is Ashley Perry. Her husband Chris is a chaplain with Special Forces at Ft. Bragg. Ashley and baby Arabella have attended Zoo Day and our Chaplain Family Retreat.

Moving every three years can be hard on military spouses, but Ashley says that the best part of her life as a chaplain’s wife is the support of the unit ministry team community.

When she worked in the nonprofit arena, Ashley helped others find healing and wholeness. She has continued to lead worship and plan events while partnering with her husband in ministry. Ashley embraces this lifestyle and says:

From premarital counseling to hosting soldiers and their families for dinner, leading Bible study and marriage retreat weekends, to singing the national anthem at ministry events, there is always an opportunity to serve. It is an honor to be able to do it.

It can be a challenge at times to slow down and rest. OR does a wonderful job catering to our hectic lifestyle by offering fun, relaxing and meaningful events that are well thought out and planned. Every detail is considered and covered. OR’s chaplain care retreats give us time to reconnect as a family and come back energized and ready to serve. Click on Ashley’s video to hear more.
