Pastor Appreciation Ideas And Resources

Pastor Appreciation Ideas and Resource for churches who want to honor their pastor is what this website is all about.

We invite you who visit this site to share your ideas for expressing appreciation.  We can learn from each other what has worked in your efforts to pay tribute to the ones God has called to shepherd the flock God has given them.  

In addition, you will find resources for pastor appreciation gifts that will also be expressions of your love and gratitude.

You will see on this website there are specific resources featuring unique gifts that when combined with your love, give honor and express appreciation.

Shopping at Amazon has been the go-to resource for many Pastor Appreciation gifts.

For example, it seems the Kindle has captured the attention of those whose lives are all about books.  Pastors are all about books so the Kindle would be a great gift of encouragement for your pastor's hard work!

More Than An Annual Event On The Calendar

We want to help you make Pastor Appreciation Month a highlight of your church year.

While this can be most certainly a special time for paying tribute to pastors,  a special month set aside for expressing gratitude to spiritual leaders is just a small part of it.

Pastor Appreciation Month is much more than an event on the calendar.

The focus of this positive, faith based website, is to challenge churches to honor and encourage pastors throughout the year.

Finding ways to express genuine appreciation to your pastor is your task. Providing resources for expressing that appreciation is ours.

Your Church Needs A
Pastor Appreciation Champion

If a church is to truly honor the pastor, someone needs to step up as the Pastor Appreciation Champion.

I believe that every church needs someone to champion these efforts, a person who will take the lead in promoting appreciation for pastors.

Greetings from San Diego, California. While I am called "Chaplain Paul" by the people I minister to as a now retired health care chaplain. I consider myself to be an Internet Chaplain as I promote church health as well as the financial success of pastors. 

I also see myself as the Pastor Appreciation Champion of the Internet. By focusing on an Appreciation Theme, my desire is to help churches celebrate Pastor Appreciation Month by providing resources and ideas that prompt churches to pay tribute to their pastor.

Appreciation Is An Attitude

Genuine appreciation is much more than just scheduling pastor appreciation month or giving pastor honoring gifts.

As you creatively express gratitude to your pastor, you demonstrate much more than you realize. Expressing gratitude and appreciation is a very practical witness to your community of God's grace and mercy.

After all, griping about your pastor will never convince your community that God is a God of Love, but demonstrating genuine appreciation certainly will.

A Healthy Church Shows Appreciation

I believe that conveying appreciation is the sign of a healthy church and healthy churches want to pay tribute to their pastor through loving acts of gratitude.

  • Biblically, honoring spiritual leaders is a concept throughout the pages of scripture.
  • Practically, showing appreciation serves two purposes. First, as already stated, expression of gratitude is a positive Christian witness, showing your community that God is loving and merciful.

    A second practical result of honoring pastors is that it creates an atmosphere that encourages a response to the call of God to pastoral ministry.

    A positive, healthy church produces those called of God to serve in Christian ministry.

  • Ultimately, clergy appreciation by a congregation is an expression of gratitude to God for their pastor. Honoring the pastor reveals more about a congregation than it does about the pastor.

    Your church's expression of gratitude for your pastor and his or her ministry efforts can be one of the most effective demonstrations to your community that your church is indeed a loving church.

May the greatest clergy appreciation gift given by your church be the gift of a healthy church, ready to share God's love not only with your pastor but with your community.

Funding This Website

Yes, there is a cost to hosting a website.  I have chosen to fund it through advertising from those providing Pastor Appreciation resources.

The FTC (Federal Trade Commission) mandates that I declare I may receive compensation for doing so.

And hopefully I will, since that is the whole idea behind what I call the genius of internet marketing.
