Pastor Appreciation

Pastor and Staff Appreciation Information

“Now we ask you, brothers, to respect those who work hard among you, who are over you in the Lord and who admonish you.  Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work...” Thessalonians 5:12-13

These instructions by Paul are very clear.  We must love, support, and under-gird our spiritual leaders.  We propose that church members plan events on Sundays in October to show love for your pastor, church staff, and their families.

Pastor/Staff Appreciation Day provides an excellent opportunity for your church to affirm love and appreciation for those who are called by God and your church to lead them in fulfilling the Great Commission.

Traditionally, the month of October has been designated as Pastor/Staff Appreciation Month. Pastor/Staff Appreciation Day is usually celebrated the second Sunday in October. However, it is always a good time to show your love and appreciation to the ministers who serve you.
