Pastor Appreciation Month

"Appreciate your pastoral leaders who gave you the Word of God. Take a good look at the way they live, and let their faithfulness instruct you, as well as their truthfulness." (Hebrews 13:7 MSG)

Pastor, you work vigorously, often neglecting personal needs to give others comfort and direction. You do so much, yet you receive so little in return. This month, we take time out to acknowledge and celebrate the efforts of your leadership.

Show your pastors and leaders how much you care:

October 11, 2009 is Clergy Appreciation Day.

October is Clergy Appreciation Month.

Clergy Appreciation Month is a special time that congregations set aside each year to honor their pastors and pastoral families for the hard work, sacrificial dedication and multiple blessings provided by these special people. It is typically scheduled in October, but can be held at any time that is convenient for the church and the community. It is also important to remember that appreciation, affirmation and prayer support of our spiritual leaders is appropriate throughout the entire year.


"The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching" (1 Timothy 5:17).
