PASTOR APPRECIATION

Pastor Appreciation October 2017

It’s not too late to remember your pastor and staff…

Brothers and Sisters of the HBA,

As I’m sure you know, October is Pastor Appreciation month. Your pastor (and staff) faithfully serve the Lord in ministry, and thereby, serve you as well. I hope that you will not forget them this month. It is a great time to honor and bless them in a significant way. Why not take the opportunity to say “thank you” to them for all they do?

How might you do that?

Some suggestions:

Provide a monetary gift

Give them some extra time off

Encourage people to share with them how much they are appreciated

Don’t forget their wives

Don’t forget other staff members

Be creative!

Whatever you do, do something that will communicate your love and appreciation. I’m confident that God will bless you for blessing them!

Thanks in advance for your support of these faithful servants.

Mike Manning
