We believe that coaches have a powerful platform to influence current and future generations for Christ.  Coaching is a calling that often includes moving,  job instability, time commitments away from home and the unseen pressures of investing in athletes and communities. The heart of this ministry is to connect and equip coaches' wives with a Biblical foundation so that they can thrive within the unique challenges of the coaching life,  and impact the world of sports as a coaching family.

To serve coaches' wives through community, resources and leadership training
so that they can thrive on the mission field of sports.
To see the world of sports impacted for Christ through the coaching family, as they glorify the Lord through their God-given platform of influence.
God's Word
We love God's Word and look to Scripture as our foundation.  It is our ultimate resource, and we have the joy of knowing the Lord through His Word and growing in community.
Gospel of Grace
We seek to share the Gospel of Grace through our posts, materials, studies, and conversations. We are not called to live this life in our own strength, but through Him, for Him and because of Him. 
Growth through Discipleship
 We believe in growth through life-on-life discipleship, both virtually and locally, and training coaches' wives to lead in their homes and communities. 
Generosity & Global Vision
We want to be a generous ministry- serving our members and reaching out to others. The Lord is calling every nation to worship Him, and we want to be part of what He is doing around the world! 

Meet the Founder...

Candace and her husband Brian spent the first ten years of their marriage as missionaries in Brazil with Campus Outreach Ministries. After returning to the States in 2008, they settled in Georgia where Brian began his career as a Varsity High School football coach, track coach and later the strength and conditioning coach. Candace began serving coaches’ wives locally in 2013, and she created Coaches’ Wives Ministry to provide discipleship opportunities and resources for coaches' wives both in her area and in other locations as well. Her experiences as a coach’s wife, mother of 3, writer and missionary inspires her to encourage and equip coaches’ wives on the mission field of sports, and to help sports ministries and coaches’ wives groups internationally establish discipleship opportunities locally as well.
