Assist Church Expansion has announced that Chery Boehm has joined their staff as the new Shepherd of Ministry Wives. As Assist continues to take on new partnerships with Charis Fellowship Churches for church planting and revitalization, the organization is now able to provide support and coaching for the wives who stand alongside the men who are serving in the trenches of local church ministry.
Chery was first introduced to the Charis Fellowship through Polaris Grace Church, Westerville, Ohio (Mike Yoder, lead pastor), when she was a student at The Ohio State University. Chery and her husband, Ron, launched into a lifetime of ministry endeavors that have grown in them a special interest in church planting.
Sensing a particular call from God to encourage women who lead, Chery joined Women of Grace, USA, as the director of leadership development and facilitated summits for Women in Leadership and Focus Retreats for women. She participated with the WoRTh Project in the creation of “A Missional Mosaic: Working Towards a Robust Theology of Women on Mission.” Chery and Ron currently co-chair the Credentialing Task Force which has been working the last four years to establish a path for women to be recognized for their godly character, ministry skills, and biblical knowledge.
Ron and Chery have also built a business partnership, Coach for You LLC, through which they coach ministry leaders and assess potential church planting couples.
