Pastor Appreciation Month

“The elders who lead the church well should receive great honor. Those who work hard by speaking and teaching especially should receive great honor.” 1 Timothy 5:17 (ICB)

October is a beautiful time of year. It is truly a time to give thanks. October offers us a chance to also show the pastor or clergy member some appreciation. October is Pastor Appreciation Month. The elders of our churches especially the leaders work hard and truly deserve to be shown respect and love. 

While the pastor may know that October is clergy appreciation month they will normally not ask for anything. But, if you took it upon yourself or formed a group to brainstorm ideas the pastor most likely would appreciate the expressive thought. While their approval comes from God they are also human and like a pat on the back like the rest of us. 

When the Lord calls that special individual to lead a church money is not at the center of thought. Many will go to much sacrifice for not only them but their family as well to do the job in which they were called for. Getting to know your pastor is a good idea and can be done any time of the year. Find out what they like and what they do in their free time. Do they like to get outside or shop any where special?? What is their favorite food or place to eat?? A gift of thanks to any of the things that he likes to do would not most likely be appreciated but deserved. 

Give the pastors family a bit of thought. It is the family that shares the man in their life with the church. They know that it is God that has the plan and is in charge but there are also times that they would just love to have their husband, father, son to their selves. 

A special card expressing the thankfulness and gratitude for the pastor is a great idea as well. This special note lets your pastor know that you think he is doing a good job. The gift of volunteering for projects that need help makes a great gift as well. At times the best gift a pastor could wish for is that individual that will show up and offer to help. 

What will you do for your pastor this month
