Clergy Appreciation


OCTOBER IS CLERGY APPRECIATION MONTH and Pastoral Development would like to encourage your congregation to show appreciation for your clergy during the entire month.  God speaks about appreciating our pastors in Hebrews 13:7, “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.” (The Message).  Your pastor is a special person.  He or she is a leader, a spiritual guide and a partner in ministry.

OCTOBER 13th IS CLERGY APPRECIATION DAY, and although local churches appreciate their pastors all year long, it is good to set aside one special Sunday to let your pastor know the love and respect you have for this special gift from God.  This is the focus of Clergy Appreciation Day.
