Today we get to talk with Erin Wheeler about one of our favorite topics here at Journeywomen, the church! Erin is a mom, a pastor’s wife, a theology teacher, and a writer for TGC and 9Marks. Her first book, The Good Portion: The Church, is slated to be released in 2022. Today’s conversation is packed with Scripture that reveals God's heart for his body. We pray that after listening to this conversation, you’ll be encouraged to press into the church and seek to worship and serve the Lord alongside brothers and sisters in your local context. 




  • What is God’s purpose for the church?
  • What value have you drawn from being intimately involved in your local church? Write down or share a particularly encouraging church experience.
  • Where in Scripture do you see God’s heart for the church? Consider memorizing one of these passages.
  • How has the church been a means for you to come to know and love God more?
  • What are you going to do or implement based on what you learned in this week’s episode?
