Pastors are people just like you, with limited energy, time, and strength. Discouragement can sometimes sneak in while serving others. So pastor appreciation month (October) is a great time to show how much we appreciate our church leaders and how they have impacted our lives.
A simple card, an invitation to lunch, a promise to pray for them or an offer to babysit, wash a car or mow a lawn make wonderful statements. You can even share with your friends at church about planning something special. Perhaps a surprise time of affirmation during the service, a special potluck event, the sky's the limit!
Here are some resources to spark ideas on doing something extra special for your pastor this month.
