October is Pastors Appreciation Month and an incredible opportunity to bless your Pastor. As a Conference, we realize that our Pastors are our greatest asset and those who serve well are worthy of appreciation and blessing. In fact, Paul exhorts in 1 Timothy 5:17:
"Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in preaching and teaching."
As you consider how you might be able to serve and honor your pastor, here is a website that has tons of ideas and resources to use along the way.
There is a downloadable list of 50 creative ways to bless your Pastor, including taking a special appreciation offering, writing notes of appreciation, hosting a BBQ, and more. If you are a first-time Church engaging in their process, you can even qualify your Pastor for a $200 gift card and discounted retreat and vacation opportunities. This is an incredible tool for a Church in this effort!
So take some time and prayerfully consider how you might be able to bless your Pastor this year!
